This overnight workshop is a sequel to Wilderness Survival 1.0. Through hands-on experience, participants will implement the skills and knowledge gained during the 1.0 session. Participants will select their campsite and build their shelter for the night, find and prepare their own food, and use their knowledge to properly keep themselves warm and accurately find their way through the woods.
The workshop is for kids ages 9-17 years old. Registration is required by Wednesday, September 23 and space is limited. Participation in Wilderness Survival 1.0 and instructor approval is required. Parent/Adult Guardian participation is welcomed. Scouts looking to fulfill requirements for the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness Survival badge are encouraged to participate in this program. Scouts who complete ECWS 1.0 and ECWS 2.0 will be able to earn the Wilderness Survival badge.
The workshop will begin at noon on Saturday, September 26, and end on Sunday, September 27 at noon. Activities are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Participants are required to dress appropriately for the outdoors and will receive a list of required gear prior and waiver forms prior to the workshop.
