Primitive Wilderness Skills with Four Nations Coalition of Indigenous Medicine
Learning about primitive skills lends us perspective on what skills would have been needed to sustain ourselves in ancient aboriginal societies. In our modern world, learning these skills develops an awareness of ourselves and our environment, strengthens our relationships to the land and others, as well as builds self-esteem. In this program we will learn basic skills in animal tracking, fire starting, bush crafting, shelter building and natural weather forecasting.

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.
