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 sleeping in the comfort of your own tent. Adults only. $200 per person; register by Oct 2 at ccfpd.org. For more info: (217) 896-2455 or pleiter@ccfpd.org
To help keep costs down, we do not provide food in this course.
