Dangerous Camp for Boys | The Heights School

Dangerous Camp for Boys

All boys need adventure in their life. This camp is for designed to foster a love of life and adventure outside of the trappings of video games and technology. The DC4B offers a generous sampling of activities and lessons that familiarizes the campers with games, hobbies, and skills that every boy should know and love. The camp is much more idea-specific than the usual “boys summer camp”. With its conglomerate of themes, this camp is directed with a specific vision towards the healthy, all-around growth of boys’ body and mind, through healthy, active leisure. The camp will be divided into four ‘companies,’ allowing the boys to take part in a friendly competition that culminates on the final day of camp. Sample activities may include calligraphy, sports, field trips, short stories, yo-yos, harmonicas, knot tying, bouldering, historic battles, juggling, paper airplanes, fire-building, slingshots, lawn games, creeking, and more! Boys have the option to attend the full two-week session or to attend one week.
