Winter Shelter Building

The art of staying safe & warm in the cold

In this family- and adult-oriented class, you will learn the basics of making 3 kinds of winter shelters:

  • The Quinzee
  • Tarp Craft
  • Thermal Mass Shelter

We will also concentrate on how to stay warm in the winter without shelter and techniques to prevent hypothermia, frostbite and other cold-related injuries.Come away from this class with practical tools for staying safe and enjoying all of what winter has to offer!
