Please dress appropriately for the weather. You will be spending most of the time outdoors. Lunch is not provided.


Advanced Fire Starting Class, October 28, 10:00 A.M. until 2:30 P.M. (1/2 hour lunch break)

Can you start a fire if your life depended on it? What if you found yourself without matches or other incendiary materials – could you get a fire going? If you wish to improve your fire-making skills, then come out for our advanced fire-making workshop and learn to be a “fire ninja”.

Winter Survival Skills, November 25, 10:00 A.M. until 2:30 P.M. (1/2 hour lunch break)

Winter is fun but the cold is dangerous! So forget hibernation and register in our workshop to learn how to make us of the environment and the gear in your backpack to stay warm, dry and safe in the cold. The workshop will cover equipment, how to dress for winter, fire and shelter. Who knows, perhaps you will pick up a few ideas for Santa’s wish list.
