SUMMER SESSION CLASSES
Fire is essential for life, providing warmth for comfort, heat for cooking, the ability to purify water for drinking, and giving light for your camp. Learn the science behind fire, effective choosing and preparation of materials, various methods of starting a flame, and also, proper maintenance and safety. A fire challenge will conclude the class, putting your newfound skills to the test.
Wild Child Weekends
A condensed version of Bushcraft Kids, these one day, 4 hour courses cover the basics of connecting children to nature and introducing them to a variety of wilderness skills. Topics covered are determined by the season. Classes occur the first Saturday of each month.
Now more than ever kids need nature. Studies show that children with a connection to nature are healthier physically, emotionally, and mentally. This weeklong summer camp will provide children a well-rounded foundation in wilderness skills, including primitive fire making, bird identification, shelter building, animal tracking, etc.
As part of Fjallraven’s Backpack & Boots Event, this clinic will cover a variety of canvas, wool, and metal items that serve as a traditional trekker’s setup. We’ll also be discussing how to craft a 3-stick Roycroft Packframe for your next outdoor adventure!
