This is a 'trial series' of afternoon treks in the Carp Hills exploring bushcraft, survival skills and related lore. Activities vary with the weather and group but many include: traditional fire starting; learning animal tracks; emergency snowshoe making; useful plants, lost-proofing and much more. This is intended for adults and older youth (12+ if accompanied by guardian).

Chad has taught survival skills and related outdoor pursuits for all ages and levels in various locations in Canada. Read more about Chad here:
