Bushcraft Basics: Basecamp Essentials 2023 – CO

August 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - August 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm CDT


with Jacks Genega of Wildcard Wilderness Survival

Basecamp Essentials is a course that is designed to promote a sense of wilderness living with others and beyond our basic needs of survival. Students will learn how to build varying means of comfort entirely off the landscape including benches, chairs, and beds.

As a class we will learn how to build instruments such as mallets, sawhorses, and vices and how they can aid in processing fuel and other materials. Other topics will include cutting tool safety, cooking over an open fire and food preservation, camp maintenance, simple pioneering as well as several different knots, notches and lashings on top of some handcrafted projects at the end of the course.

Students will walk away with the knowledge of how to construct a basecamp to share in a community or as individuals in the wild.
