Wilderness skills for groups

During our wilderness skills class you will learn some of the basic survival skills. We do everything in groups in a safe and fun way. Our wilderness guides will teach you how to orienteer with a map and compass, how to make a campfire with or without matches etc.If the sun is shining we can make a sun clock of natural materials found in the forest. We will also do some smaller team building activities.
