Campers will explore these specific skills as they pertain to both survival and general woodland proficiency. We will create a warm, dry group shelter using materials gathered from the forest. We will discuss and practice methods of finding and purifying water(it's not an emergency so we'll stick to drinking what we know is safe). We'll work with a variety of fire starting materials and tools, both primitive and modern, as well as fire safety and maintenance. We will explore the possibilities of wild foods and what we might do to secure food in the wilderness.
This class will be part theory, with lots of hands-on practice and testing. Other concepts such as lost proofing, basic navigation, and survival basics will be explored.
These are the fundamental four of wilderness survival skills:
