Man vs. Wild Day 2

Today S9 attended the second of four “Man vs. Wild, Jr.” camps at On Target Outfitters.

For today’s camp, the kids were allowed to bring a locking-blade pocket knife. They used the knives to make wood shavings for starting camp fires. They learned how to build a fire and also how to be safe with it (don’t leave the fire unattended, build it in a ring or other contained area, etc.) Again, they split up into teams. S9’s team made a “heat trap” out of bark and were the first ones to have a successful fire- a challenge, since we have had a lot of rain lately.
