Wilderness Living Skills Workshop

Fri, April 27, 6:00 PM - 2:00 PM

April 27-29, Friday 6 p.m. – Sunday 2 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. $200 per person. Register by April 20: ccfpd.org, (217) 896-2455 or pleiter@ccfpd.org.
To help keep costs down, we do not provide food in this course. Also please note that the showerhouse may not yet be open for the season.
