Do you like to build forts and roast marshmallows over a campfire? Then this day is for you! Join us for an exciting day building practical winter shelters for fun and survival. We'll choose a good campsite, find the best building materials, and do it all with little impact on the land. Afterwards, we'll gather wood and discover the tricks to building a safe and successful campfire. We'll end the day enjoying S'mores around the fire!
We integrate the outdoor classroom with rigorous academic concepts, conservation-based themes, and connection with nature. Audubon Vermont's series of monthly UnSchool programs focuses on key science concepts: math, biology, environmental sciences, outdoor skills, and communication/team skills. Audubon's programs will enrich, reinforce, and diversify what you’re working on at home.
