At the university I attend, one of the Conservation Officers has a class in the spring about outdoor survival. I want to say that the class is only a week long (not too sure exactly) but after we do some in-class learning, that weekend we go out into the woods (not sure exactly where they went last time) and spent the weekend out there, applying what they learned in class. Shelter building, edible foods, building a fire, etc. SO EXCITED! I plan to take the class and I'm super excited about it :)

What do you guys think? Good idea to get young people out and learn about survival? I think it is!

I hope to learn a lot and maybe practice what I already know. If I find out what all we would be doing, I'll let you know!

Sounds great! When I was a kid we did a lot of extended back-woods camping... great experience and lots of fun.
There's a LOT of good things to eat in the wilderness if you know where to look. We've collected a number of good field manuals on the topic of edible wild plants & mushrooms. It's fun to to make an occasionaly meal from things we gather on a hike :)

These guides have been pretty good :
A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and central North America (Peterson Field Guides): Lee Allen Peterson, Roger Tory Peterson: 0046442926225: Amazon.com: Books
National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms (National Audubon Society Field Guides): Gary H. Lincoff: 9780394519920: Amazon.com: Books
That sounds like fun! We never did much camping in the woods :/ it was usually our yard... haha but I'd really like to go camping in the woods too. Morel mushrooms are AMAZING!! Especially fried and dipped in Ketchup :p I plan to get books about outdoor survival, ect :) Thanks!
