Camp Description

Pingry upper-school science teacher and outdoor enthusiast Stephanie Mygas will teach campers entering grades 6 and up to build and tend a safe campfire. Each day, campers will hike to the campsite on our Basking Ridge campus, where they will build a cooking fire and prepare a snack. Campers will practice environmental stewardship and develop teamwork skills as they work together in the natural environment.

What to Pack

Campers will be outdoors in light rain, so please pack a poncho and waterproof shoes, and a water bottle. In case of dangerous weather, environment science activities will be scheduled indoors.
