Led by Alex DeWitt, you’ll work outdoors in Braziers beautiful grounds and learn how to make a primitive survival shelter using nothing but natural materials found in the woodland. You’ll then compare that to shelters using tarpaulins… Click here for more info.
To secure your tarp shelters you’ll learn a few knots which are easy to learn, fast to use, and can be undone easily. You’ll make your shelters in teams and evaluate how well they would protect you from the weather on this fun morning in the woods. Designed for adults, but supervised children are welcome to attend.
