Introducing Borealis Bushcraft October 01 2014

Greetings, 

We have an exciting announcement to make. I have recently met with the team at Borealis Bushcraft (www.borealisbushcraft.com) and we will be putting together some skill-shops to learn some basics in outdoor survival and general preparedness.  

 

Do you feel confident and comfortable in the wilderness? Jonathan Sprohge and Roland Ward will teach us the basic wilderness skills our grandfather's took for granted such as;

 

  • Building a bushcraft survival kit
  • Wilderness and emergency shelters
  • Bow drill fire starting
  • Basic plant identification and other edibles
  • Winter skills: what to do the other six months of our Manitoba year.
  • And more...

 

Perhaps your company sends teams out into wilderness areas, or your youth camp or school would be interested in a class, or maybe your a hunter or backpacker, these skills would be of great benefit when your on the trails. Please do let us know and we can tailor something to meet your needs.

 

Class schedules are usually based on interest, but we will periodically offer classes. Class sizes for day classes will be limited to 10 and weekend trips 5. So keep watch for an announcement soon as we are preparing a class as we speak.
