Students spend 5 days learning how to camp safely and comfortably, all within the grounds of the school. We explore how to set up hammocks, tents, bivvy bags, mesh tents and desert shelters as well as how to build our own natural shelters called 'Bashas'. We also learn how to purify water, hang food bags from trees to keep wildlife away and how to use nature to our advantage when deciding on a safe and comfortable place to camp. The course culminates on the last day with a fun activity and competition and a memento for the students to bring home with them.


All of Lee-Stuart Evans' outdoor courses offered dovetail/ compliment each other.


**This class is being offered in person OR virtually.  If your student would like to attend virtually please email Mr. Evans to let him know.
