Backcountry Adventures Photo Gallery

Adventure was the name of the game at Umstead State Park this week. Our fearless campers learned about all kinds of skills associated with exploring the backcountry. We learned about water filters, shelters, and cooking fires, as well as various kinds of handy knots. Some campers took the opportunity to work on Growth Rings as they perfected their skills in the fields of Plants, Snakes, Fire, and Whittling. No week of camp at Schoolhouse of Wonder would be complete without critters, and we were not disappointed. Along with a myriad of bugs and birds, we spotted a black rat snake and a few tiny turtles! We enjoyed creek-time each day; rock-skipping was a favorite pastime for many. Take a look at the photos below to see some of our adventures!
