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.
