The official listing goes as follows:
The Outdoor Winter Survival Camp is an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors during the winter. Youth will sleep in an Adirondack lodge, but during the day they will travel through the 1,200 acre forest on snowshoes and cross country skis. Youth will learn how to build shelters to protect themselves from the winter elements, learn different ways to build fires in the ice and snow and stay warm, administer emergency first aid, build a small survival kit (to take home) and prepare meals over the fire. The youth will strengthen their physical skills in preparation for a long trek to an iced over waterfall at the end of the week. Outside of these activities the youth will share camaraderie around evening bonfires and participate in leadership team building activities. The friendships and memories from this camp will last forever. The $25 registration fee is nonrefundable. -
