Outdoor Survival Camp

Join Virginia Outside for a week of educational outdoor adventure at Burke Lake Park! 

Campers will spend the week learning outdoor and survival skills including:

  • Fishing
  • Shelter building
  • Canoeing
  • Fire building
  • Orienteering 
  • Campsite Preparation

Throughout the week we build on campers skills with a series of fun games and challenges.

Campers will then put their newly learned skills to the test, camping out Thursday night at the park. They will get to enjoy dinner by the campfire and bond with their peers through stories and games!

Virginia Outside will provide all equipment throughout the week as well as most supplies for the overnight portion. A packing list will be sent out before camp begins.
