Wilderness Skills and Fire-Making
4.0 hours
This exciting outdoor adventure is all hands-on! Learn the wilderness skills of the native Kumeyaay people and how they lived off the land for thousands of years using their natural resources.
Participate in three hands-on primitive wilderness skills including; Yucca rope making, building a debris shelter, and grinding red clay and seeds to learn how resources were prepared for survival. The day culminates with the whole group learning to make fire by friction using a bow and spindle. Fire building techniques are demonstrated with an emphasis on fire safety. Each student will take home a finished Yucca rope they make.
