Actions and Detail Panel
Family, Youth, and Teen Experience
Sun, Jul 2, 2017, 5:00 PM – Fri, Jul 7, 2017, 12:00 PM EDT
Our modern society is so fast paced and "time" driven that it can be difficult to slow down and walk with the rhythm of the day. What would it be like if the sun were your clock, the birds your internet and the Earth, your home? The Family, Youth and Teen Experience class allows for a sense of timelessness, were families and individuals can share meaningful experiences which foster curiosity, appreciation and respect for the Earth and each other.
Participants will learn survival skills in a manner similar to the way Stalking Wolf taught Tom Brown Jr. These skills include tracking, shelter building, friction fire techniques, water collection and purification, edible/medicinal and utilitarian plants, primitive cooking, bird language, and much more! One focus of the class will be the creation of a personal bow-drill kit, a friction fire method. Participants are divided into groups according to age for some activities, including adults, while other activities will be done as a group.
