This week we will cover the basics of Wilderness Survival: The Five W’s of preparation, finding north without a compass, signaling for help, and the importance of attitude in a survival situation. We’ll learn about several types of survival shelters, choose the best one for our situation, and build it. (with a possible overnight in shelters or tents.) We’ll make cordage from yucca, learn the art of flint knapping, and making shell beads. We’ll hike to some amazing places and learn how be with the natural world through song, stories, and all our senses.
