9:00—3:00 Living in the Wild
Ever wonder what you would do if you got lost in the woods?  This adventure will cover all the basics: fire building, survival kits, shelter building, and orienteering to name a few.  The first rule of wilderness survival is to stay positive—you can survive.  We’ll teach you how.
