Survival Skills Weekend with Polaris Outdoor

In preparation for the Arctic Expedition in February, 15 HCH students went on a Survival Skills trip with Polaris Outdoor. They learned how to build shelters using only the resources they could find in the woods around them, how to light a fire, how to safely use a knife to carve tools, bake their own bannock bread over the fire, and how to forage for resources and food. They also built resilience in the wet and cold weather and dealt with a few setbacks!
