Outdoor Wilderness is a 1 quarter, 6-12 week wilderness skills course, covering the basics of all parts of survival living- shelter, water, warmth, and food. We spend 1-2 sessions on each activity, and finish with a wilderness party at the end. We’ll spend enough time on one activity to spark curiosity, foster excitement, and keep kids wanting more, but make sure we are always keeping them engaged and always having fun. Our sessions are progressive, and there is an end goal that they are working towards.
