You will have counselors who help you with the skills you'll need to know to live outdoors for
your two week adventure. Our activities are planned for Southwest Wisconsin so that transportation for out of camp trips is held to a minimum. Campers experience taking responsible roles in group living. Each session includes a service project.
These sessions are small and do fill up. Please discuss the trip with your teenager before signing
them up for it.
Teen Sessions: Camp Woodbrooke's teen sessions are designed to enhance the Woodbrooke experience with activities and skill development appropriate to campers ages 13-15. These sessions are open to campers who are at least 13 years old, have completed the 7th grade and are interested in learning a wide range of wilderness skills. The 2019 teen sessions will probably include a multi-day canoeing outing, hiking, a service project and learning some wilderness camping skills. It is important that each teen camper know how to swim. More details will be added as they are planned.
There are personal and group challenges inherent in this type of camp program. It is expected that the participants have a sound level of maturity. In addition certain medical or psychological conditions may make participation in this type of program difficult. Please contact the Camp Director with any questions or concerns.
Leadership: There will be two adult counselors at all times and extra leaders as needed when the group is out of camp on outings. The two adult counselors will be over 21 years of age and will be trained to help support adolescents during this type of challenging camp program. They will have water safety and appropriate first aid training. The counselors will nurture increasing leadership roles for each camper and will have activities planned so no one will be bored!
Details: More details of this year's session will be added as they are planned. If you have questions before then, feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Out of camp teens can expect to hike or canoe all day, carrying personal and group gear in all kinds of weather conditions. They will sleep in primitive campsites or in shelters the group builds and cook their own meals. Transportation will be in cars or minivans with drivers (at least 25 years old) approved by Woodbrooke?s insurance company.
Canoeing: The Kickapoo River is often considered one of Wisconsin?s best canoeing rivers and the nearby Wisconsin River offers other canoe possibilities. The weather will be a factor in choosing the location. Campers must pass a swim test and demonstrate that they can complete a five-minute continuous swim and be able to tread water for five minutes. Campers will always be wearing personal flotation devices while canoeing. Practice opportunities on Woodbrooke's pond before a trip will cover basic canoe strokes and maneuvers, righting swamped canoes and safety and emergency protocol.
Biking: No biking this year. Biking and canoeing alternate between years.
