TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT THE NATURAL WORLD SHOULD BE TREATED AS THOUGH IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENTS OF THEIR LIVES ~ THOMAS BERRY
Dear teachers, leaders, and fellow educators,
Greetings from Camp Latona! Since 2007 we have been providing a space for groups of children and youth to spend time in the outdoors away from the confines of city and school life. We truly believe in the power of a few days in the wilderness to impact on the development of today’s youth.
In recent years we have been working hard to upgrade and renovate our camp facility to meet the current needs of our outdoor education programs. We have added a variety of exciting and challenging elements to our program offerings to aid students develop and grow from new opportunities different from those of everyday life. Our thrilling elements such as the high ropes course, boating, and zip line are all in place to be used as part of intentional, excellent programming which encourages challenging adventure.
How many times have you been a part of a transformative time in the lives of young people? The first instance of public speaking, the first time a child conquers their fear of heights or the water, the first expression of leadership and creativity… Something incredible happens everyday at Latona and we are glad you have chosen to share these memories with us.
By encouraging this personal development, we at Camp Latona seek to do our part to address the issues affecting the youth of today in that life is good (if not better) outside, being active, and instilling that we all can in fact, do hard things! The activity elements complement our ground based programming, with the key emphasis on achievable goals for each participant as priority.
We are delighted to help in anyway possible; from transportation to unique needs. We will do everything we can to ensure your camp experience is extraordinary.
Thanks again for choosing Latona for your outdoor experience this year, and we look forward to having you on board for the season
Chris “Riptide” Bryson, and the Camp Latona Staff team.
