This is an advanced course that teaches the wilderness skills practiced by the indigenous people who once lived on the land that we now teach on. Through hands-on projects and challenges, campers will have the chance to practice a range of skills such as making fire from sticks, pottery, basketry, stone tool construction, making bark and wooden bowls, crafting arrows, building advanced shelters, gathering wild plants, and even going on a bullfrog hunt (participation optional!). These skills will be put to the test during an overnight experience on Thursday, when campers may sleep in a survival shelter they built, gather wild food for a feast, make the camp fire by rubbing sticks together, and eat dinner out of a wooden bowl they made.
