Rooted & Rising Camp requires that participants be able to:
- work with and get along with other members of a group in team situations;
- be able to handle being away from home for 13 to 15 days,
- be able to tolerate being in a new environment while experiencing many new situations including sharing living space with others, eating new foods, being on an early wake up schedule, camping and sleeping in a tent and having limited access to a phone to call home.
Participants must demonstrate a positive and respectful attitude towards others and be able to take care of and manage themselves and their emotions.
Students will be learning natural history skills through the lens of both traditional and western knowledge; will tide pool and observe marine life; and will kayak, camp and explore Kachemak Bay. Of course, there will also be a mix of games, activities, campfires, and more!
