Home School (Age 9-14): Winter Survival
January 10, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$10
Any of us could find ourselves in a situation where we need to use winter survival skills. Not only must we respect natural forces but also learn what nature provides to help us survive. Learn how to dress, pack a survival kit and work cooperatively when faced with a survival situation. We’ll also learn how to recognize and treat the symptoms of hypothermia and frostbite, and work in teams to build a fire and a debris shelter. If teams are successful in creating a shelter, building a fire and boiling water, hot cocoa will be served!
9-14 year olds will focus on different types of debris shelters and fire starting without matches.
For all sessions, registration deadline is 48 hours prior to the class. This is done to allow for ALNC to plan for small group sizes and staffing needs. Please call (608)-216-9370 to inquire about space if trying to register within the 48 hours prior to a program.
