Wilderness Survivor

Do you think it would be fun to learn how to survive in the wild? For the first few days we’ll explore the Kananaskis area with our experienced instructors and learn hands-on skills. We’ll learn how to safely build fires and shelters, be bear aware and much more. The last 2 days are spent on a group overnight trip to try out your newly-acquired skills and sleep in a shelter that you built yourself. Required: check equipment list and additional information in the online event details. Prerequisite: attend pre-trip meeting with a parent to discuss required items and cover meal planning (food is not included). The pre-trip meeting will be held the Tuesday of your camp at 3:30 pm (Spring Wilderness Survivor is on June 9th). Includes: instructor, all group gear, transportation.
