This year we tried something completely new. A day camp over spring break with lessons from the Bible and outdoor survival skills taught my aerospace engineer and 20 year boy scout veteran John (Ranger Halt) Dewsnap. What do you think? Do these kids have what it takes to survive . . .
The campers learned about water purification through iodine tablets, pumping, and boiling snow.
Safe fire building. Be sure to dig down to the clay before laying your tinder!
Making paracord survival bracelets, which can be unraveled and used for rope in an emergency situation.
Campsite Cuisine, yum!
Building a group survival shelters using tarp, paracord, and natural resources.
Building individual Survival Shelters using whatever resources the area provides.
Princess Leia Freyja wishes that someone would let her inside their survival shelter. She only knocked down that one wall, and really, it was looking pretty wobbly anyway.
Just getting outside into the beautiful world that God made is always worth the effort.
