Mission Wild Summer Camp
-Garey Park Georgetown-

Join Earth Native for an outdoor camp experience full of fun, adventure, and wilderness skills at Georgetown’s beautiful Garey Park this summer! Garey Park is 525 acres of beautiful Texas Hill Country nestled on the South San Gabriel River. The park features fishing ponds, South San Gabriel river access, beautiful mixed live oak, pecan, and cedar woods and over seven miles of trails to explore.

 

Ever wonder how to navigate without a map and compass (or with a map and compass for that matter…), build a stick fort, catch fish with a hand line, start fires by rubbing sticks together, and do other amazing things that most people have probably only seen on TV? Earth Native is here to help! We believe in oldschool skills that not only make childhood enlivening but also help kids to develop confidence and competence! Our 8 shields inspiration based teaching model turns learning into fun and personal growth is built into every adventure. 

 

The scientific consensus is in, kids need the outdoors! Children who regularly spend time outside receive incredible benefits, including increased happiness and overall health, lower stress levels, better academic performance, and even better vision! Kids are designed to play and develop outside, however, we know that it can be hard to inspire them to get out there on their own. Let Earth Native help! Kids LOVE our camps and we love adventuring with them and teaching them cool new outdoor skills, it’s a symbiotic relationship if ever there was one and Garey Park is the perfect place. 

 

Skills covered at camp will include a variety of the below topics (note topics covered will vary week to week):

 

  • Navigation - with and without map and compass

  • Primitive fishing

  • Riverplay and water ecology

  • Edible, medicinal and useful plants

  • How to make rope from natural fibers

  • Animal track identification

  • Interpreting bird language

  • Camouflage and sneaking skills

  • Nature games

  • And more!
