Outdoor Education

Whether you simply want to rent out the facility for an afternoon or you want a full-scale, activity packed week for your group, Copper Cannon is the right place for all of your needs. Rentals at Copper Cannon Camp are fully customizable in every way, allowing you to tailor your program in every category to get just the experience you are looking for. The camp is available for activities as small-scale as an outdoor classroom for local school groups or a two-hour nature hiking program. Then the activities can range all the way up to a full week of “camp” where Copper Cannon staff lead activities, cook meals and even help with transportation. The choice is yours.

Various ecosystems, miles of trails, the Gale River running through the property, the 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest connected to camp – what more could you ask for in an interactive, up-close outdoor classroom? Copper Cannon’s location and setting make it the perfect destination for school groups and anyone looking for an educational experience. Let our staff take you on a nature hike through the woods of camp to learn about the health of the forest. Take part in a wilderness survival course to learn about fire building, shelter building and primitive hunting methods. Or simply bring your own curriculum and bring the lesson to life in a scenic setting.
