We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 27, 2021.
Learn the basics of thriving in the wild! Campers build confidence, communication skills and good judgement, through fun scenarios on their own or in teams. Skills taught/practiced include shelters, fire building, wilderness medicine, teamwork, traps, orienteering, cordage and knots and primitive skills. We play survival themed games and the week ends with an exciting final scenario and a certificate of achievement. Bring appropriate clothing, snacks and lunch.
