Winter Survival Camp At Pioneer Ridge

The husband and the boy headed to Pioneer Ridge Nature Center to learn about winter survival and ended up with their pictures on the front page of the newspaper!

The afternoon session was geared towards families to work and learn together to build a shelter to survive the elements.

There were many variations of shelters.

Making fire was another segment of the session.  I was informed that this part was very difficult due to the materials that were at hand. 

The afternoon ended with some hot chocolate at the Nature Center and a photo op with Annette, the Naturalist leading the program.

Pioneer Ridge is one of our favorite locations for free or low cost family fun.  We find ourselves there at least once each season, if not more.  Check out Pioneer Ridge’s web-site for a list of events—click here.

  1. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    Invented by the natives of North America.

    Pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

    These people spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at

    How folks 150 years ago did it!

    These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.
