Through hands-on experience, learn how to prepare for the wilderness and survive the forces of nature. This 2-day program will highlight the most critical concepts of wilderness survival. On September 21st, the program will focus on wilderness preparation, shelter building, water purification, and foraging. The September 22nd class will cover fire starting and natural land navigation.
This workshop is for kids ages 9-16 years old. Parent/adult guardians are welcomed.
