Expose students to basic outdoor survival skills that will enhance their enjoyment of outdoor experiences

  • Learn safe practices for fire building and camping
  • Learn acceptable low-impact camping techniques that keep our environment as natural and unharmed as possible

Potential Activities:

Survival camping skills is not a survival course, but a chance for students to learn practical skills that make outdoor recreation and camping enjoyable. Students may be involved in natural shelter construction, fire building, knots and lashing, fire safety and outdoor cooking. Discussions on first aid, sanitation and low-impact camping attitudes will be stressed. The student will come to realize that the outdoors can be as safe and fun as any recreation in their own home.
