Winter Survivability

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am PST

This program will be led by two local First Nations residents, who will take us to their pit house near the Spruce Trailhead by UNBC. We will be educated on the function and use of the pit house, and about the plants, herbs and animals used from areas like this one by local First Nations people.This will be an incredible opportunity to learn about how First Nations lived and survived during the winter time and we’ll get a chance to light the fire as well and prepare some bannock on a stick for the children.

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.
