Questions to Ask Your Outdoor Survival Skills Camper – Thursday

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

  1. Yesterday morning we learned about edible plants and how to use the Universal Edibility Test. Out of the three edible plants we tried (sourwood, pine, and kudzu), which was your favorite? 
  2.  Today we made a fire while learning about primitive fire-making techniques. How do you make a fire with quartz and steel, and where do you put your sparks?
  3.  This week we found two turtles: a yellow-bellied slider and an Eastern box turtle. What do they look like, and if you chose to touch them, how did they feel?
