Morning: Shelter building (debris huts and snow forts), safe tool use (saws and axes), How to stay warm in the winter

Afternoon: Introduction to friction fire (bow drill, hand drill, flint and steel), fire safety and construction, winter tree I.D. for first aid, medicine and food, Pine needle tea over an open fire

Day Two: February 10, 9:30am-2:30pm

Morning - Bundle Bows (a fun toy that could be used as a hunting tool in an emergency situation), Throwing sticks and practice, Range games

Afternoon - Knife safety, Chopstick carving, Bread-on-a-stick with homemade jam - So delicious!
