    Overview

    On your way to a remote wilderness destination, your single propeller plane has engine trouble! Your fate is in the hands of an experienced bush pilot, who must put the plane down in the trees in an attempt to save his passengers. The sounds of cracking limbs and tearing metal soon give way to silence. Find out more!

    When campers arrive, they will be assigned a team that they will have to work together with in order to survive. Once they get to the mysterious destination, they will have to put their survival skills to the test! Campers must collaborate in fire building, finding shelter and sustenance, and setting up camp. There will be lessons focused on wilderness survival, emergency signaling, and navigating on the water and in the forests. Campers can expect to form close bonds with their teammates as they scramble to gather the supplies and materials necessary to survive the night. In addition, there will be plenty of designated time to enjoy traditional camp activities such as water sports, picnics, and more! There may also be a challenge course that includes a 300-foot Aqua Zip-line!
