Questions Ask Your Wilderness Survival Camper – Tuesday

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  1. The group practiced their map reading skills by looking at an Umstead trail map and a North Carolina road map on Monday morning.  What is the first thing you need to do when reading a trail map?  How do you look up a specific city in North Carolina?  Did you think reading one of the maps was easier than the other?
  2. Campers also learned about several edible plants on Monday.  What edible plants did you learn about and how do you identify them?  Why do you have to ask a counselor before eating a plant from the forest?
  3. Tuesday the group played a wilderness survival themed scout mission game.  What was the mission?  What role did the staff play?  Did the group survive?
