This is the perfect Semi-Pro Skill for the camper who loves to play! Each day will be stuffed full of playing soccer, volleyball, Willsonball, basketball, and all the Jug 'n' Jog you could possibly ask for. You will always be doing something new and having a wildly good time.

Survival Skills (Semi-Pro Skill only)

Survivor has NOTHING on our Survival Skills campers. You are going to have a blast starting fires (the legal kind), building shelters, map and compass work and all the fun stuff that goes into living outdoors.
