WILDNIS CAMPS

WILDNIS CAMPS

At our wilderness camps we’re offering children and youth a palephora of activities, games and workshops to experience in Nasswald’s pristine nature. Thinking back to the times of the lumberjacks who originally settled this valley, and even further back to our primeval ancestors, we’re asking ourselves what challenges and obstacles they may have faced and what means, tools, ideas or other ways they had to master them. Workshops in fire making, building shelters, carving and crafting with natural materials will be complemented by interactive games and outdoor adventures. We’ll also make excursions into the forests, hike up mountainsides and go swimming and cliff jumping at the river on hot summer days. The program also includes canoe, kayak and tubing tours. In the evenings we’ll have campfires and barbecues.
