Nature Adventure Camp Co-Instructor Guide – Moose Hill
This is the second year of this program here at Moose Hill for our older campers ages 12-15. You will have a group of up to 6 campers with whom you will explore Moose Hill with. This program will have daily experiences with exploring the lesser seen parts of the property, group development activities, wilderness skills, nature connection, and a reflection period. This program is designed to allow the participants, and the staff, to really get out and get to know the Moose Hill property. This program will challenge you as a staff member, and give you skills to help guide the participants to a deep knowledge and connection of the land here at Moose Hill.
