Wilderness Survival Workshop going well.

This past January I joined a homeschool group.  The administrators have allowed me to teach a group of 10 kids ages 8 to 12, and in class I have been sharing some of the most fun things I learned in survival school.  We have played some stalking and awareness games, made clay bowls that we fired in a campfire, made a debris hut, played blindfold games, made cordage, made bow drill kits, made fire, made a snare, and will be “hunting” with quickie bows and throwing sticks this week.  To top it off, we will have a camouflage, capture the flag game, in the dark, trackerschool style, this weekend!

I’m so pleased with how enthusiastic these amazing kids have been.
