Join the award winning overnight camps of Trackers Earth. We offer real outdoor adventure in a safe and supportive learning environment. Your child experiences authentic traditional skills such as wilderness survival, archery, blacksmithing, and kayaking.
Campers might train wilderness survival skills, learn woodcraft, shepherd a flock of sheep, or even embark on a medieval role-playing adventure. We journey everywhere in the Pacific Northwest, from camping in the foothills of Mt. Hood to kayaking on the Oregon Coast.
My ten-year-old daughter had her first overnight camp experience at Trackers. She came home with songs about milking goats, hand-forged iron, and memories for a lifetime. She loved the wildness of camp and her own sense of self-sufficiency.
