KNOW YOUR KNOTS WITH TARPS AND HAMMOCKS (1-4 PM)
In an emergency situation you have 3 hours to secure shelter in extreme temperatures. Students learn to quickly make a shelter using a tarp. With a system of easy-to-learn knots, students will be able to construct reliable tarp shelters in a matter of minutes. We will explore a variety of tarp pitches for different environments and situations, to create the most effective shelter to withstand inclement weather. While we cover tarp shelters in EDC Wilderness Survival, we will go deeper into shelter creation, exploring even more pitches and variations. This is great for anyone looking to make their pack ultra light on the trail.
Takeaway: Students will learn to quickly and effectively construct a reliable tarp shelter for a variety of environments and situation, to withstand the worst of mother nature. This is great for anyone looking to make their pack ultra light on the trail.

PLANT WALK (9-12 PM)
Take a walk on the wild side with American Survival Co. Trek through the woods and around our War Eagle, AR base camp with our expert survival instructor, identifying edible and medicinal plants that are readily available in your area. Learn the benefits and modern uses for these plants, as well as how indigenous cultures used common weeds as essential medicine and cooking ingredients. You will leave with valuable knowledge of everyday plants that can be brought into your kitchens and medicine cabinets.
