Wilderness Living Skills Workshop

October 20-22, Friday 6 p.m. – Sunday 5 p.m.


Burr Oak Group Campground, Middle Fork River Forest Preserve

Spend 3 days camping in the hardwood forests of Illinois where you will learn to make use of the landscape around you. This is an exciting class with lots of hands-on practice in the essential skills of wilderness survival. Participants will learn to make rope, light fires with fire-by-friction, build a shelter that will keep you warm and dry, find food in the wild, and techniques of cooking food over a fire. All this while still sleeping in the comfort of your own tent. Adults only. $175 per person. Register by Oct 13: ccfpd.org, (217) 896-2455 or pleiter@ccfpd.org.
To help keep costs down, we do not provide food in this course.
