Arizona Teen Survival Week

Program Description:

This is an amazing opportunity to live in survival in the beautiful Arizona Mountains. We will have a base camp on the Verde River and be traveling on foot to a remote wilderness camp. The past two trips have been full of adventure, creating shelters to sleep in, making bowls from cotton-wood, eating pencil cholla fruits, tracking mountain lions, making rock tools, and exploring the ancient village sites in the area. The land is actually on Apache ancestral lands. The deep silence and peacefulness of this remote wilderness is a refreshing renewal for all.

This program is open to teens, age 14-17, who have taken the week long Teen Experience.
