Pre-Orientation

We are so excited for all of you to participate in Pre-Orientation!  Below, you will find descriptions for each class. Get excited for Pre-Orientation!

Ropes Course

You will arrive on Sunday May 20th at 1pm for this class! You will be certified on our course at Camp War Eagle. Ropes Certification is not something that carries over from place to place, but you would be able to work on our Ropes course here. The class includes belaying, initiative games, and high ropes course instruction. It is a challenge but a great one.

Lifeguarding

You will arrive on Sunday May 20th at 1pm for this class! You will get a Red Cross Lifeguard Certification for this class at no charge to you. (This class normally would cost you around $250—so that is a pretty good deal!!!) This certification is good for 2 years and you can use this at any pool that accepts a Red Cross LG Certification. The skills required for this class are:

  • Swimming continuously 300 yards without stopping (Breast and Freestyle Strokes are the only allowed strokes)
  • Retrieving a 10 lb brick out of 9 feet of water and swimming on your back with it for 20 yards.
  • Treading water for 2 minutes using only your legs
  • Holding breath underwater for 10 seconds
  • Performing all skill tests/rescues and passing a written test for LG and CPR with 80% accuracy

 Outdoor Skills

You will arrive on Sunday May 20th at 1pm for this class!

This class is so much fun and has a huge variety of things you will learn!!! They include:

  • Archery
  • Riflery
  • Mountain Biking
  • Skeet
  • Woodworking

The only thing that would affect you not doing well in this class would be if you are afraid of guns. Otherwise, regardless of experience, you will do fine in this class.

Horses

Wranglers will arrive on Saturday May 19th at 6 pm for this class! (Note: This is one half day earlier than all other certifications due to the instructors’ schedule).  We will certify you to work in our horse program at times during the day.

Crafts

You will arrive on Sunday May 20th at 1pm for this class!

You will get certified in multiple Camp War Eagle crafts including: Pottery Wheel, Ceramics, Hand Molding, Jewelry Making, Candle Making, Wood burning, Tye Dye T-shirts, Beads, etc. If you like crafts, you will love this class!

Nature

You will arrive on Sunday May 20th at 1pm for this class!

You will be certified in all aspects of our Nature Program at Camp War Eagle. The Camp War Eagle Nature Program is a program that allows us to use God’s Creation in teaching kids about nature, ecology, conservation, camping, wilderness survival, and the outdoors. There is no prior experience needed for this class, but it would be good if you had a passion or at least interest in the outdoors and nature.
