We will provide all sorts of materials including fire starters, hand saws, tarps, cordage, and more… you are welcome to bring your own materials to practice with if you choose!  It’s important to get comfortable with your gear, or you can use ours as a starting point to learn about options.

Location is to be determined; likely out at the PG Snowmobile Club at the end of Scott Road in Buckhorn (southeast of town, past the airport).

Time:                    10am-3pm

Required gear:   Good boots or shoes, layers to keep you warm & dry, water bottle, lunch and snacks.  Hats/toques/gloves etc depending on the weather – early April can by tricky!  We will have lots of gear but you are also welcome to bring a backpack with your own survival, safety, or first aid equipment too.

Who is this for?

Adults and kids ages 8 and up. This workshop is for anyone wanting to feel more prepared for outdoor adventures of any kind, and people who like to have fun while learning.  Mishaps and misadventures do happen, so it’s best to have practiced these skills in advance.
