Boy's Wilderness Skills Pack Trip


Here at Cornucopia Lodge, we are passionate about educating our young people in back country skills, survival techniques and teaching them to love the outdoors as much as we do.  They are the future and if they are going to be entrusted with the protection of our wild lands, they need to love it and understand it. 

During this 4-day, 3-night pack trip, the boys will learn basic survival techniques and information such as:

  • Fire Building
  • Shelter construction
  • Knife Use
  • Leave No Trace Principles
  • Map & Compass
  • Horseback riding
  • Fishing
  • Campfire Cooking
  • Basic survival 1st aid
  • Basic Flora & Fauna identification

Open to boys ages 12-17, with or without their fathers.  Their first night will be spent in our on-site wall-tent camp where they will be assigned their riding animals, given guidelines and prepared for their next 3 days in the wilderness.  Days 2-4 will be spent at a wilderness camp, where they will be introduced to the above skills, given opportunity to practice (with much supervision) and where they will gain confidence, patience and basic skills.

Cost is $600/person and camp is limited to 8 people.
