The “Survival Game”

A real camp favourite! Kids get to learn what it is like to survive as a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore, by searching for food and water and avoiding predators as they hunt through the forest. This game develops children’s appreciation for nature and wildlife, through fun and exciting wilderness adventure. Without question your children will talk about this game as one of the highlights of the week.
