Outdoor Living Skills

Outdoor Living Skills

Camp Wyandot Outdoor Living Skills Progression Program (OLS)  is designed to help campers be more confident and comfortable in the outdoors. The outdoors can be a safe environment and an adventure where campers can be doers rather than viewers.  As they progress through each of the five levels they build outdoor skills and learn to work as a group.

Morning Mile

Morning Mile

Campers get a glimpse into the ins-and-outs of running. Campers meet in the parking area and learn proper runners stretches before running, jogging, or walking to the entrance gate of Camp and back. Campers who complete Morning Mile twice during a session will receive a patch at the end of the week. No Sweat!

Nature Progression

Nature Progression

This program addresses areas including sensory awareness games, camp improvement projects and activities involving the ecology and ecosystems, weather, camouflage, mammals, flowers & plants, birds, reptiles, insects, geology, trees, and more. At the end of the week every cabin will have completed requirements for their chosen level of progression and will be awarded accordingly.

Polar Bear

Polar Bear

Cabin units wake up early in the morning and go for a quick jump in the pool when the water is warmer than the air. This activity is supervised by licensed lifeguards and is a great way to wake up and start the day! Campers who complete Polar Bear twice in one session will be awarded a patch at the end of the week. Chomp! Chomp!
