Wilderness Survival Trek

Last week, Frank and Karen led students into the wilderness to test their survival skills.  First, students spent a few days at base camp preparing for the trek.  Tasks included drying jerky and making pemmican (nutritious survival food)…

wild food foraging…

and learning to prepare the wild foods.

Once on the trek students practiced shelter-making,


and food foraging among other valuable skills.

New this year was a “solo” night at the end of the trek where students separated and spent the night alone in the wilderness.  Everyone made it through with flying colors!
