To learn skills then share with children to learn & grow in the out-of-doors

One of my favorite winter activities as a trail guide was to do "Winter Survival". This involved taking 8 to 10 3rd graders out on a hike and pretend that we are lost and it is getting dark, we need to survive the night. Our pack contains 2 tarps, rope, matches, marshmallows. We make a tent, gather kindling, tender, & fuel, build a fire and toast the marshmallows. We don't panic, we shelter in place and "survive the night".
