Wilderness Survival Skills

Shelter BuildingNo matter the season, students can always learn, experience, and enjoy something about surviving in the wilderness. This program is avaliable during all seasons and will be augmented to fulfil the groups requirements. Students will discover the basics for surviving in the forest by participating in different activities to develop and understanding of how one can adapt to their surroundings in different ways. The activities we have planned for your students will encourage critical thinking, application of previous knowledge, group work skills, leadership skills, and listening skills. By using and evolving each of these skill sets in the activities, students will become better students and citizens beyond the classroom and Haliburton Forest.
