Hunger Games Inspired Survival Course
The Hunger Game Inspired Survival Course is a noncombat, day-long workshop that focuses on the wilderness skills made popular by Katniss in The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. During this course we focus on introductory archery, primitive fire making, and wild edible plant identification skills. Like Katniss, these skills can help to keep you alive in survival situations. The understanding of wilderness skills also gives a deeper appreciation for the outdoors and offers a closer relationship with natural world around us.
