Tuesdays, March 29-May 17, 2022, 4:00-5:30PM

Kids: learn how to survive in the wild! Learn shelter construction, fire building, field first aid, knot tying, foraging, and knife skills. Try your hand at making herbal remedies and teas from foraged plants and cooking over the campfire. The last day will be a survival skills team contest. We will meet for an hour and a half every Tuesday after school, rain or shine.
