Questions to 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…

  • On Monday we started off with Wilderness Stations. What did you learn in fort-building? Did you help build any forts so far this week? What did you learn in whittling? (Hint: the whittling rules follow AH COW – ask a counselor, have a seat, check your blood bubble, open your blade, whittle away from yourself.)

  • Growth Rings give campers the ability to work on different skills here at Schoolhouse of Wonder. What are the Growth Ring topics? (Hint: plants, snakes, fire, and whittling.) What plants did you learn were edible? Do you know how to distinctly tell what tree and leaves are edible? 
  • Tuesday we played Survival Scout Mission. What objects did you have to find and what were the meanings? What are the main 3 things you should know about survival? What were your favorite moments during the game?
