If you missed one of the meetings, the class notes for completing the merit badge worksheet are available. For the outdoor (fun) part of the merit badge, we are meeting out where Tuskegee Drive turns into a gravel road (just past the disk golf course) at noon on Saturday, April 26th. This exercise simulated getting lost in the woods so scouts showed up dressed and packed for a day hike. On the way up the side of the ridge, we stopped let each scout practice signaling with a mirror. Once we reached the top the scouts built their emergency shelters for the night and then worked on starting fires using three different methods other than matches or a lighter.


Flint and steel, magnesium strikers, steel wool and a battery, Fresnel lenses, and a parabolic mirror were all used successfully. Even though we brought an extra gallon of water, we were running low by late afternoon, so a group of scouts took the water filter and found a small creek to filter water.
On Sunday morning we got up, had breakfast, tore down the shelters and hiked back down to the road. Come prepared to be showered with invaluable information, introduced to some life saving skills, work hard and have a lot of fun at the same time.
The course assembles Friday evening for an initial safety brief at 7pm and finishes at approximately 3pm on the Sunday.


Wilderness Survival is a set of skills and attitudes that you can develop and build over time.  Some skills cross over between seasons, others (such as building snow shelters) are specific to the weather, terrain, and vegetation conditions you are experiencing.
Whether your group has 1 hour or 2 days to spend on a workshop, is composed of kids new to outdoor pursuits or hardened and mature veterans of outdoor adventure, we've got some learning and team building for you!
