Experience the WILD in winter in our beautiful forest and fields! While spending lots of time outdoors, we will
- track animals and find the special places of the fox, deer, bobcat and others…we will get a glimpse of their secret winter life.
- build winter shelters: a quinzee, a lean to, a zarsky…various methods to stay warm and dry.
- test our fire-making skills in the snow…we will help each other learn the best techniques with and without matches, then bask in the warmth of our accomplishments in our wilderness home.
We will enjoy hanging out around the fire, staying warm in shelters that we make, sharing lunch and cool stories and other natural mysteries.
Bonus: we will also learn about ice safety and hypothermia and how to stay safe outdoors in the winter. We will pick up strategies of staying warm by playing games and other activities.
All of this for $282-$306, sliding scale, for 4 days!
