Flying Cloud is an intimate camp for boys interested in a rustic summer of living in the woods. Campers and staff together run their own unplugged community on the side of Salt Ash Mountain. Flying Cloud is almost entirely powered by human hands.
Boys live in tipis or yurts with three other boys and a counselor. With staff, the campers take responsibility for the daily tasks of an off-the-grid wilderness community: pumping water, bringing ice from the ice house, and cooking over an open fire with the rest of the cooking crew. Responsibility for the basic tasks of daily life is thrilling to campers, who rise to the challenge and fly beyond it. Campers choose morning and afternoon activities which appeal to them, including wilderness skills, hiking, games, storytelling, and crafts such as ceramics, knife making, and beading.
