Join our Executive Director Bo Glover for an afternoon learning the basics of fire starting. Knowing how to build and maintain a fire is probably one of the most important survival skills you can have. Knowing how to start a fire means staying warm, the ability to boil untreated water, the ability to dry wet clothes, keeping insects away, being able to signal for rescue, and having the ability to cook food. It’s also comforting and pleasant – fire creates a sense of community. Bo will tell us where to build a fire, what materials to use, and which sort of structure to build. He’ll give an intro to making a fire using friction and then participants will make their own fires to cook with (dinner is included!).
This program is for individuals, couples, and families with kids 9 or older. Bring a FIXED BLADE KNIFE and come dressed for the weather – the program will occur outside, and it is rain or shine!
