Spend time exploring Mid-Coast Maine where we will participate in a variety of winter activities. We will head to Camden Snow Bowl where we will either downhill ski or snowboard. Another day we will grab the ice fishing equipment and if the conditions are right, we will head out on the ice and see if the fish are biting. We will also go over the basics of primitive skills including: water collection, shelter building, fire making, tracking, camouflage and stalking techniques. We will also spend time learning outdoor cooking and living skills, including Leave No Trace principles.
The group will be staying in a cabin with a wood stove, beds, and an outhouse. All food and group gear will be provided. Participants should be able and willing to carry their own equipment, as well as group food and gear to the cabin. The menu will consist of wholesome and delicious foods. We will also participate in a service project to benefit and preserve the park. All fees and day fishing license will be purchased by Unity College.
