SCP SELF-RELIANCE

WEEKEND

Why is this event important?

Why spend the time and money to attend this event?  Here are just a few reasons:

 

  • Learn to be more independent and at the same time more dependable - During a critical situation, you may need to be more independent, relying less on others for help. At this event, various instructors will demonstrate skills that allow you to be more independent and help other people when the need arises.  Our sessions are an investment in yourself because you are a valuable resource to yourself and to others.

 

  • Experience a connection with nature - You can learn to be comfortable in the woods and appreciate the outdoors by enjoying nature in a location that has the amenities needed for comfort.  

 

  • Have fun with other like-minded folks - This weekend is an opportunity to depart from your normal routine and do something adventurous, and to strengthen cooperation and community among other SCP Members. At this event, you will learn skills and see how others do it. This will help build confidence in yourself and your family in a crisis circumstance.

 

  • Learn to test yourself - While these skills are extremely accessible, they do require direct instruction and practice.  Acquiring the skills our instructors teach will allow you to experience a sense of accomplishment and confidence that you can then apply to other areas of your life. Knowledge dispels fear, and the knowledge you gain at this event will always be with you.

What should I expect at this event?

 

This event is inclusive with activities for all ages:

 

  • Adults and young adults will have the opportunity to learn about preparedness techniques such as… first aid, firearms basics, how to pack and store food sources, animal processing and butchering, three ways to meat, how to create fire in most weather conditions, knots that work best, bugging in vs. bugging out, and so much more!

 

  • Younger children, ages 4 - 9, can participate in activities just for them. There will be a wilderness scavenger hunt. Outdoor craft projects, from things collected on the hunt. They will learn how to make a hobo fishing reel, along with learning some fire-making skills. They will also learn about wilderness awareness and how not to get lost, but what to do if that should happen.

    • Also, each child will need a whistle for the wilderness awareness discussion.

    • Every child will need to have his/her own drinking container, drinks, and snacks. 

 


 

The weekend will consist of both large and small group presentations, and there will also be plenty of time to socialize and relax. This is a great opportunity to build relationships in the community. Feel free to participate as much or as little as you like.
