Survival training for kids available at the Wausaukee Library

WAUSAUKEE – The Wausaukee Library is hosting Woodsy Dude, a local survivalist who teaches children of all ages to embrace the outdoors.  Woodsy Dude will teach two courses on Wednesday, July 17 at the Evergreen Park Pavilion in Wausaukee.  

The first group will be for ages 5-9 and will be at 10-11 a.m.  Registration and transportation are required.  Students will build a primitive survival shelter, learn how to signal for rescue, create trail markers and learn how to catch food. We will also be looking at wild resources such as stone tools and bones. Each student will receive a small kit with survival items to use throughout the program. They can take these home with them. 

The second group is for ages 10-14 and will be at 1-3 p.m.  Registration and transportation are required.  This course starts with a basic discussion of a few popular outdoor themed books and then quickly moves to learning hands on outdoor and survival skills. Students will build a primitive survival shelter, learn how to signal for rescue, create trail markers and learn how to catch food. The class will also be looking at wild resources such as stone tools and bones. The program will end with students learning about Natural Cordage. Each student will receive a small kit with survival items to use throughout the program to take home.

To register for either program please contact the Wausaukee Library at (715) 856-5995.  The library hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
