Living comfortably in the woods requires knowledge and skills in shelter building. This two hour program provides the fundamentals of shelter building. Students will learn and practice knot tying, and the use of tarps and other materials to create a shelter. Concepts of minimal impact camping will be emphasized. The focus of this program is 'hands on' experience, with the opportunity for participants to construct their own shelters and identify the reasons behind various methods of shelter building.
