About the Course

If the weather is clear we will be doing games involving fire by friction, shelter building, cordage making and more. Come prepared with water and a snack with good shoes and durable clothes.

If it is snowing then dress warm and bring your sleds and snow shoes for some tracking and an epic game of snowball dodgeball.
