Week 3 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester Update: 1 Spot Left For Fall

Properly trimmed canoe for poling upstream

We’re into week 3 of the summer 2024 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester and things are humming along. Last week we started canoe paddles and everyone has been diligently working away on them with hand tools. Water levels in the river are dropping to summer lows, limiting the moving water canoeing options nearby, but we’ve been out on the river working on poling skills and the baseline skill level is progressing right on schedule. This morning we’ll be building our first shelter of the course, a bent-sapling dome we call a hoop house.

Although the fall semester was full as of a week ago, we recently had a student drop out, so we’re back to having one spot available for fall. If you’re interested, get in touch.

I’ve been working on the 2025 schedule and have it almost completed. We’ve got a few big announcements coming soon.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
