During our shelter building activity, our qualified instructors will teach you how to build a range of shelters. You will be able to protect yourselves from the elements - as well as predators.
After an initial safety briefing, participants will be given an in-depth introduction to the equipment they will be using during the session. Participants will then receive demonstration before moving on to the activity where they will be instructed throughout.
