The Longhouse Council Okpik course has basic material for front-country campouts, and advanced material for high adventure back-country trips. There are two sessions, a Saturday of classroom instruction and show-n-tell, and an outdoor weekend of demonstrations and practical applications, to include constructing a snow shelter, sleeping in the shelter you built, and taking a hike on snowshoes (rentals are available). Upon completion of the course you will receive a certificate. You must attend both sessions to complete the course. One may also purchase BS!’s Okpik book.
