Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a time when all the necessities of life were made by hand from the raw materials of the earth? During this exciting week of adventure and discovery we will settle into traditional dwellings made from poles and sod. We will learn the names of trees as we search for the perfect branches that will become our bows and arrows. Days will be filled with playing forest games, swimming, lighting fires, learning to cook wholesome feasts, and experiencing a day of rock climbing. Venturing deep into the forest we will set up a wilderness outpost and learn a variety of primitive crafts. Come celebrate the wonder of craft, producing useful things from the gifts of the forest, and return home with your own creations.
