The primary aim of this trip is to offer a summer of unparalleled excitement, challenge, and breathtaking nature.

Participants will also get a unique opportunity to learn a wide range of basic survival skills such as wood working, fire building, trail blazing and the ability to build fire and shelter. Finally, the participants will also get to learn food identification as well as map reading and using a compass.
Besides these basic survival skills, the participants will also get an opportunity in this summer camping trip to learn canoeing, portage, camp cooking, knife safety, water filtering and much more. An exciting addition being offered for the advanced group is the exciting Solo challenge, an opportunity for the participant to practice what he’s learned by himself or with a friend.
“Besides learning skills, the teens participating in this trip will also get an opportunity to learn about the importance of Emunah and Bitachon,” said R. Shaya Rand, “Following in the footsteps of R’ Avigdor Miller Zt”l, the bochurim will see first-hand how the world truly testifies to its creator. We believe that the summer can be truly fulfilling and inspirational, as well as being a source of amazing fun.”
