Due to the minimum number of participants not being met, this class has been cancelled.

Stranded on a remote country road. Falling through thin ice while ice fishing. Lost and disoriented during a weekend hunting trip. Winter in Minnesota can be fun and exciting, but it can turn into an emergency very quickly! Over 1,200 people die from cold-related injuries every year! Don’t be a statistic! Through hands-on teaching by an experienced outdoor instructor, participants will learn basic survival strategies, including: emergency shelter-building, fire skills, selecting the best clothing and equipment, how to build an emergency survival kit, and first aid treatment for cold-weather injuries. Have fun, gain important knowledge and skills, and be prepared for the next “Polar Vortex”.

Note: This class will be outside between 2-3 hours.
