You will be learning about SURVIVAL. The first part of the session is the study of survival theory in a variety of situations. To make this information more meaningful we are intending to spend one night in a survival situation with minimum equipment.
Each participant will have equipment that they would normally take for a day tramp,
supplemented with the extra comfort of a sleeping bag. With this equipment you will
endeavour to construct a shelter, for yourself, and spend a night in this unfamiliar

Bring and wear what you would normally take on a day hike.
COST $50.00
