Outdoor Skills Day
June 18, 2016

The first annual Outdoor Skills Day was held on June 18, 2016.

Participants learned to: fish, became archers (and fish using archery), discovered the secret to building fire by friction, and found out how not to get lost by using map and compass (and how to survive if they do get lost).

They experienced nature on a short walk and learned about edible and medicinal plants, practiced their wilderness 1st aid.

They learned what groups or resources are in our community to keep building upon outdoor skills so that they’ll be ready for some great camping trips and adventures in their future!
