Intro to Survival Skills, Session 2 *FULL*

Band together with your fellow campers to learn the “ins and outs” of wilderness survival. Campers will start with the basic order of survival. Can you build a shelter out of the surrounding forest? Where might you find water when needed? We’ll focus much of our attention on how to stay found and how to navigate through the forest. These important skills will help build outdoor confidence, all while having fun and making new friends!
