Fire and Knife Skills (Weather permitting) Spring Break Camp
A 5-day skills camp focused on the art of friction fire and woodcarving- the main keys to wilderness survival. In the forest with fire pit access, we explore and practice techniques for finding dry wood in a wet forest, constructing a fire structure, and using a traditional bow drill to spark a coal using only natural materials. Alongside fire-making, we dive into the world of woodcarving, using safe and efficient techniques to transform wood, for a fulfilling mix of learning and adventure.

What Families are Saying

“OMG!! They LOVE spring break camp – each day they both rave about how this is the BEST camp EVER, as does their cousin. Thank you all for making this week so memorable and such a great learning experience.” – Felicia, Spring Break Camp Parent

“My son loved the spring break camp, as he loves everything else at Soaring Eagle Nature School (SENS). My kids have done lots of camps with SENS, as well as weekly and monthly programs since 2015. SENS is a perfect blend of active and serene, physical and mental, group and individual. The kids come home excited, inspired, and very muddy. It’s all great.” – Amanda, Spring Break Camp Parent

“I want to take a moment to say how much my kids loved the spring break nature camp in North Vancouver. Your program provides an experience and connection to nature that has become really important to them over the course of the year, shaping what they do with their free time and how they understand the world. So thank you!” – Alix, Spring Break Camp Parent
