YO Firebuilding

Looking for ideas or equipment to fuel outdoor explorations with a group of youth? We have gear, lessons and activity plans to get you started! Take kids fishing or skiing, make plaster casts of animal tracks, teach and practice the skills of fire building and campfire cooking, tie knots, set up shelters, and more. Make sure you are prepared for stormy weather with our rain jackets. Lesson and activity ideas included.
