Shelter Building

Build a den in the woods! Once again at our Doumont location. During this Explorer Day we will learn how to create a shelter and make being outdoors more fun — and more comfortable.

We’ll look at different ways to make a shelter so please bring along a small toy that we can use to build a shelter for, before we move on to larger scale shelters to fit our own body sizes!

This session will also include some cordage (rope and cord) making.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
