Questions to Ask Your Outdoor Survival Skills 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. On Monday morning we learned about three types of shelters that can be constructed out of natural materials (teepee, A-frame, and lean-to). Which type did you build and how did you build it? Do you remember how many feet of debris it takes to waterproof a shelter? (Answer: 6 feet)
  2. Today we learned how to tie three knots needed for a ridge line to create a tarp tent. Which knot do you know the best? What is it used for?
  3. We played a Schoolhouse original game called Six Feathers. How is the game played? What does it mean to “play with honor”? What are some ways that you can play Six Feathers with honor?
