Dangerous Camp for Kids - Summer
Following on the success of the Dangerous Camp for Kids this last summer & this Springbreak
4 Dangerous Summer 2018 Camps for Kids

Do you believe that risk and danger still have a place in our society?
We are organiational development and risk management specialists who support humanitarian organisations working in high risk environments like Somalia and Afghanistan. In addition we have operated experiential wilderness based activities for youth in BC and the UK.
We are also parents who firmly believe that our children need to have a safe and managed exposure to risk if they are to be able to meet the challenges of the coming years.
Drawing inspiration from books such as “The Dangerous Book for Boys” and the work of people like Gever Tulley, and based on the success of the summer camp of 2017 and Sringbreak 2018, we are running four camps in July 2018.
Camps 1 & 3 will cover a blend of hard skills such as survival skills, shelter building, fire making and soft skills including problem solving using structured individual and group experiential activities like a ropes confidence course, where skills such as conflict resolution, negotiation and decision making can be developed in a more focussed way than just through the hard skills activities.
Camps 2 & 4 will build on the skills of previous Dangerous Camps and entail staying out for the Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday nights. The hard skills will see a progression of individual, team & task planning with the kids taking responsibility for all required planning & execution of a mini expedition.
Camp will run from Monday to Friday 0830 to 1700 from Mario's Marvellous Movie Emporium (the floating/frozen coffee ship) near the government dock in Old Town. For Camps 1 & 3 we will do activities on Mario's and use Jolliffe Island too. The Thursday night will be a sleep out experience.
Camps 2 & 4 will base out of Mario's with the expedition being to a location in the North Arm.
Each camp is strictly limited to 12 participants as we want to ensure full engagement based on a high staff to particpant ratio and believe that any larger group works against that objective.
All required insurances and CR checks are in place.
If such a camp would be of interest please contact us to discuss this further.
