Understanding how to create an effective wilderness shelter is a must for anyone who ventures into the backcountry.

ALL THINGS SHELTER

When harsh weather hits we may have to endure strong winds, pouring rain, lighting, extreme cold, sweltering heat, and anything else nature throws at us. Understanding how to create an effective wilderness shelter is a must for anyone. Having theses skills can mean the difference between life and death.

 

 

Each season presents its own threats.Our workshop is essential to effectively create shelter to defeat the seasonal obstacles. From keeping us protected from the elements to providing a safe place to rest, wilderness shelters serve a key role in the wilderness. Shelters provide for the body's needs and also create a sense of security and home in the wilderness.

Students will learn everything they need to know about staying dry and warm in the wilderness, working hands-on building several types of shelters.
