  • Religious, political, or external affiliations?
    Our philosophy is not influenced by any religious, political, or external affiliations. We stand independent, driven solely by our mission to enrich the lives of our campers. We pride ourselves on being "Awake" to the world around us, emphasizing the importance of understanding, appreciating, and harnessing the abundance of our natural resources. Our camp is a sanctuary where families can step away from the digital distractions of the modern world and immerse themselves in the beauty and lessons of the natural world.
  • Tell me more about what happens at Camp...
    We understand that as a parent, you want the best for your child. And what could be better than a camp that challenges them both physically and mentally while also providing a fun and exciting environment? At Brave, we believe in purposeful play, which is why we ensure that everything our campers do has a meaning. Is it tough? Yes. Do they struggle? Yes. Do they develop greater self-awareness, confidence, and grit? Absolutely. But that's the point, and that's why they're at our camp. Our location-dynamic, multi-sport, and adventure "day" camp is designed to keep your child engaged and excited. Each day, our campers discuss and decide on missions, set goals, plan their routes, and complete their missions, sometimes up to 10 or more in just five days! And although we are an immersion camp, parents' knowledge of the daily plans and support of their camper before and after each day is crucial.
  • What is our philosophy / our vision
    At the heart of our camp lies a deep-rooted philosophy and vision that we fondly refer to as the "Way". Our "Way" is a reflection of our genuine commitment to the holistic development of men and their families. We believe in creating an environment where men can reconnect with nature, discover their innate potential, and grow in an atmosphere that's free from external pressures. Our philosophy is not influenced by any religious, political, or external affiliations. We stand independent, driven solely by our mission to enrich the lives of our brothers.
