Mountain Man/Survival Camp (Cherry Valley) — May 28-30

The following is from

Hello Families!

The final Celebration Education trip of the school year is coming up! This camp is run by Scott Riley of Riley’s farm, but on the other side of the hill in Cherry Valley. They’ve got a real mountain man who’s going to teach us the ways of living off the land. We’ll get to forage for food and make our own shelter!

Besides the foraged food and emergency shelter, we will be provided with all the meals and a tent. The cost for this three-day, two night event is only $130 per person. Join us!
