Fjallraven | Camp Craft 101
Sunday, March 22nd
Join wilderness therapy dog Molly Dog, her human Adam Tittley, Wilderness expert Rob Ross and Fjallraven guide Travis Bower for a day out on the land.
The duo will be teaching 3 skills needed to safely set camp out in the wilderness; knots & tarps, fire building, and camp cooking. This event is geared towards those with experience getting outside in the cold, who are keen to expand their knowledge and build a tool kit of wilderness camp craft skills.
We would love to encourage carpooling for this event. Parking on 17th Ave is free on a Sunday, so meet at the store for 9am to carpool out to the site. (Unless of course you’re closer to Bragg Creek!) Skills at the site will take place from 10am until approximately 4pm, comfortably arriving back at the store for 5pm. We recommend you bring your own lunch and water, though we will also be providing snacks and drinks throughout the day as well as camp made tea and coffee. Please bring your own food and drinks containers.
