Wilderness and Survival Skills
This program is for those who have a great sense of adventure
and a love of the outdoors. Participants learn and apply practical outdoor
skills and survival tactics while exploring some of the most varied, exciting,
pristine and abundant natural settings in the Delaware Valley. This includes
parks, streams, nature preserves, fishing holes, wildlife habitats, climbing
and hiking destinations.
We'll become familiar with elementary survival skills including
basic emergency first aid, sheltering, fire building, water safety, wilderness
nutrition, wildlife tracking, establishing a camp site, as well as hiking,
climbing, fishing, and navigation skills.
The instructor is a very experienced outdoor skills instructor
and certified in Wilderness First Aid (National Outdoor Leadership School
trained). Safe, ecological outdoor skills and approaches will be shared and
demonstrated throughout the week.
Campers are welcome to bring their own freshwater fishing
tackle; otherwise, tackle will be provided.
