Nature | Discovering the World Around Us

— Fun, Challenges and Healing Lessons —

“Given a chance, a child will bring the confusion of the world to the woods, wash it in the creek, turn it over to see what lives on the unseen side of that confusion. In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy, and privacy: a place distant from the adult world, a separate peace.”

– Richard Louv

At CCBS we “unplug” boys from technology and plug them into nature!

A growing body of research links time spent in nature directly to our mental, physical and spiritual health.

In his book “Last Child in the Woods”, author Richard Louv popularized the term “nature deficit disorder” and reintroduced the public to the joys, benefits — and our need — of spending time outdoors.

Nature can stimulate our creativity, improve teamwork and teach us new ways to think and solve problems. And most importantly, it’s fun!

After CCBS, the boys can use the new skills and lessons that nature taught them to enhance relationships and overcome challenges throughout their lives.

At CCBS we embrace our natural world environment by enjoying:

  • Our Beautiful Campus in the Forest and on the River
  • Hiking, Canoeing, Swimming, Kayaking, Camping, Rock Climbing
  • Environmental Studies
  • Weekend TREK Adventures
  • Service Learning Projects with the National Forest … and more
