As parents, sometimes we "over do" for our kids, which builds dependency and discourages skill building. Give Flying Moose a try! Here, your boys will strengthen their self-sufficiency through the lessons of wilderness camping. As they add to their personal base of achievements, the harder-won they are, the more pride comes with those gains.
Our setting is truly the epitome of peace and quiet. Boys in the woods, no electricity, leads to riveting games of Wood Pile (our version of Capture the Flag), swimming, campfire at night. Some of the first-time campers are a little reserved at campfire, but that doesn't last long. They see the others singing old songs with great gusto, and soon join in. You don't have to sing well, just with enthusiasm! Really, what we do, takes the boys to the simple pleasures in life. A warm fire. Singing. A story read aloud before heading to bed. In the every day, hectic world, there really is nothing like it.
