Campfire, camping, hiking, climbing, canoeing.

Learn and practice outdoor-skills.

In this class we combine nature, camping and sports. You will try to camp in tents overnight, orienteering, climb a tree, sail a canoe – bonfire cooking and learn several “survival skills”.

You will also learn how to read a map, how to outdoor dress properly, how to organize as a group and how to get at strong team spirit.

The focus in the class is on enjoying, observing, and surviving in the nature. You do not need to be a skilled survivor to join the class. Everybody is welcome. There are no pre-requisite requirements. We do recommend a solid pair of shoes and clothes appropriate for outdoor living.

Camping-tour, climbing gear, canoe-renting and food we cook and eat are included in the general tuition.

Next semester is Fall 2024 from August 11, 2024 – December 14, 2024
