This session will focus on learning a knot, and then putting that knot into practical use. There will be four area of focus:

  1. Hanging a bear bag
  2. Building a line and using it as a shelter
  3. Hanging an above tarp
  4. Building a teepee

With each station, you will learn two methods to perform the task. The goal is to help you feel comfortable enough to teach these skills to youth.

We will also have an area where you can see what supplies are in the knots kit, as well as a variety of crafts that can be taught to go along with these skills.
