About this Event

FIRE STARTER - INTRO TO BOW DRILL

In this one-day class, you will learn the bow drill and how to create fire from natural materials. You will also learn various types of fire setups. Each participant will harvest their own bow drill kit from the land to take home.

Fire is a critical component of survival and can mean the difference between life and death. It’s essential that you are able to make a fire quickly in any weather condition using tools or natural resources from your surroundings. Besides the benefits of warmth and light, fire also assists in water purification, signaling, warding off predators, cooking, and wound disinfection.

Recommended Equipment/Materials:

  • Food for meals & snacks
  • Water (there is a well on site, but well water is an acquired taste)
  • Bug spray, sunscreen
  • Fixed blade full tang knife
  • Waterproof shoes / boots
  • Ferro rod
  • Bushcraft knife
