Native Skills Day Camp, Winter Break
This winter break I will be teaching two sessions of Native Skills Day Camp at Corona Del Mar beach.
Class happens rain or shine… in addition to building shelters from natural and found materials, we will put up a large tipi on rain days to keep dry. The kids will help put up and take down the tipi, a great learning experience!
We will be cooking over fire most every day of camp.
In addition to learning how to meet our most basic needs without using modern tools, students in this this winter session will:
- Learn some coastal survival skills, like using sand for shelter building and finding water along the coast
- Smoke fish and cook seafood and other foods directly over open coals without using pots and pans
- Use fire for warmth, toolmaking, and cooking
