So here’s the plan. Each month we’ll gather to learn and work on different primitive skills. We’ll end each meeting with a light meal cooked over the campfire. You’ll meet and develop friendships with great like minded people – you’re also welcome to invite YOUR friends, if you think they’re into cool stuff like:

June: Navigation (compass, constellations), Blindfold walk
July: Stalking, throwing sticks
August: Traps
September: Tracking
October: Cordage
November: Arrow making/using
December: Bow making/using
January: Food storage, finding food, fish gutting, Camp Cooking
February: Building primitive shelters
March: Collecting, purifying, transporting and storing water
April: Hand drill, review of bow drill, knife sharpening
May: Observing nature more deeply, Wide angle vision, Camouflage
Each Class: native plant uses (medicinal, food)
