  Survival 101 Class 
September 10th at Rock Springs Run State Reserve

The Wekiva Wilderness Trust, in conjunction with REI, is holding its next basic survival boot camp on Saturday, September 10th from 9.30am to 3.30pm at Rock Springs Run State Reserve in Sorrento, off State Road 46

The course has been designed for family group participation so everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency. All the  techniques are vital skills to use in the great outdoors. The boot camp will cover survival techniques, field first aid, foraging for food and water, building a shelter, rope and basket making from natural materials and fire lighting techniques (including the bow and drill technique) and navigation.

Apart from water, bug spray, sun screen and lunch, each participant is asked to bring a knife, about 20 feet of strong string, parachute cord or similar and two large black garbage bags.

The cost for the workshop is $10 a person payable on the day. If you have questions or to register, email info@wwt-cso.com
