Wilderness Survival, Trail Safety, and Night Venture
Join us for a fun day where we will combine two classes, Wilderness Survival and Trail Safety. After learning how to keep yourself safe and what to do should things go wrong, we will have some fun with FDR State Park on their Night Venture. They will guide us along the edges of Lake Franklin as we listen to a nocturnal concert. Bring a flashlight and look for nightlife in the great outdoors.
During our class, you will learn what the 7 priorities of survival are. You will have hands-on practice to master the skills needed to survive. These are skills everyone should know before heading out into the wilderness or in a natural or man-made disaster. A short day hike can easily turn into a survival situation. So before you head on the trail, come learn how to survive should things go wrong. Have the confidence that you can handle any situation that may arise. You will also learn what items you should always carry with you. We will also teach you skills to stay safe on the trail. Whether solo hiking or with a group of friends, there are things you can do to keep yourself and others safe. Most women go out and explore with no issues, but it's important to know how to protect yourself while hiking. We will have a lot of fun and learn valuable hands-on skills.
