All boys need adventure in their life. This camp is for designed to foster a love of life and adventure outside of the trappings of video games and technology. The DC4B offers a generous sampling of activities and lessons that familiarizes the campers with games, hobbies, and skills that every boy should know and love. The camp is much more idea-specific than the usual “boys summer camp”. With its conglomerate of themes, this camp is directed with a specific vision towards the healthy, all-around growth of boys’ body and mind, through healthy, active leisure. The camp will be divided into four ‘companies,’ allowing the boys to take part in a friendly competition that culminates on the final day of camp. Sample activities may include full-field nerf gun battles, obstacle courses, slingshotting paintballs, team sports and games, yo-yos, harmonicas, knot-tying, bouldering, juggling, ninja-roping, paper airplanes, fire-building, slack-lining, creeking, and more! Boys have the option to attend the full two-week session or to attend one week.

NB. Since the boys will be assigned to their companies before the first day, please email Colin Gleason (cgleason@heights.edu) to request grouping accommodations.
