Imagine moving across a frozen landscape, the air still and crisp, snow crunching underfoot. The sun is setting, unveiling the wonder of the night sky. The smell of a wood stove warms your senses as you reach your home for the night: a beautiful canvas tent, set up and waiting for you like an old friend with the porch light on.
Instructed by Dragan Uzelac, owner of Niko Wilderness Education and SPFGA member, this two day, one night Intro to Winter Camping course will leave you feeling more comfortable and confident in all your winter travels.
Covered topics include:
- fire lighting
- knife handling
- axe use and safety
- winter travel
- animal tracks
- bushcraft skills
All with the comfort of canvas tents, warmed by wood stoves. Full COVID-19 precautions are being taken, including upgrades to the sleeping arrangements.
