This class is geared toward anyone who pursues outdoor recreation in a wilderness setting. The basics of this course concentrates on the priorities needed to control the body's core temperature. These priorities are fire, shelter, water and self-aid. Topics include kit management, knife safety, fire making, tinder considerations, fire dependent and non-fire dependent shelters, water collection, navigation, lost proofing and search and rescue considerations, and more. Are you as prepared as you think you are? Kits are available for use during class and are covered in your materials fee. Students are responsible for these kits while in use and will turn them in at the end of class. At the end of class, students will receive a small fire kit to build on and a certificate.
NOTE: Students may purchase kits in advance.
Please contact AFS at least two weeks prior to the class. Students should bring a notebook and pen, lunch, a camera, any daily medications they may need, clothing applicable to the time of year and season and rain gear.
