RYP Outdoor Recreation: Wilderness Survival
Date & Time
Intro to Wilderness Survival for RYP (Special)
Limited Space Available! To register for this class please follow the link to the Earthworks Institute website.
We are partnering with Earthworks to offer this workshop exclusively for members of the Rochester Young Professionals at a special rate of only $15 per person ($30 value)! We are accepting the first 15 registrants on this date, so take advantage of the opportunity to get outside and test your survival skills!
This class will begin by covering the basic survival sequence: shelter, fire, water, food and moving beyond into tracking, wild crafting, and tool use. In this class we’ll learn concepts of how to keep out of the elements, where to look for food and tips to finding your way home. Expect a few challenges to up the excitement factor because this three hour class will take place entirely outdoors at Tryon Park. Remember to bring water, rugged cloths, wear your boots/closed-toes shoes and bring bug spray if you are sensitive to mosquitoes. We’ll be sure to rekindle that wild spirit!
