Description: In a time of high tech gadgetry and an increased disconnect from our surroundings, this camp offers a real time immersion into a hands-on woods based camp. Campers will learn to observe and absorb the forested landscape of the Middlebury area. Making fire and cooking meals, harvesting wild plants, building primitive structures and tracking animals will be some of the earth based skills that campers will experience. The result will be a deeper relationship with the natural world an experience not soon forgotten.

These camps will be run by Joshua Hardt, a Vermont native whose life has been motivated by an inquiry into all things wild. Josh has lived and guided in the Rocky Mountains and the oceans and summits of Alaska. Josh has guided expeditionary paddling in the Gulf of Alaska to the Nulhegan River; fly fishing from the Upper Connecticut to the Kenai; Mountaineering in the Chugach to the Presidentialsí. Josh is a co-founder of the Moosalamoo Center at Otter Valley High School and is also is a professor of Outdoor Recreation at Castleton University where he teaches classes ranging from Primitive Skills to backcountry skiing and snowboarding. He holds certifications in: Wilderness First Responder, AMGA single-pitch climbing instructor, ACA paddling instructor, AIARE level 2 avalanche instruction and ARC lifeguard and is a SOLO certified wilderness first-aid instructor
