Outdoor Skills Workshop for Future Registered Maine Guides

Outdoor cooking with a wokNo matter how many times that you have cooked outside for friends and family have you tried a new recipe that is not exclusive for all your group? Have you cooked on a fire using a dutch oven or used a wok? 

If you have created a set of bearings on a map, can you follow them in the outdoors avoiding obstacles like ponds and still stay on your bearing? Can you take a bearing and record it on a map? Can you teach map & compass to your friends or future clients?

When was the last time you practiced building a fire and lighting it with 1 match and keeping it going for at least 3 minutes? Do you know the best way to search for lost members of your group and how to keep your group together when hiking a narrow trail? 

These are some of the outdoor skills that will be covered during this one day workshop. 

Sitting inside an emergency shelter

You'll bring your day pack with the gear that you think every Registered Maine Guide for Hunting, Fishing, or Recreation ought to be carrying for a day trip. We will be comparing them so that we can get new ideas. You'll be tested on your ability to identify flora and fauna.  There will be teaching opportunities to practice leading a group, using a compass, reading the weather, and cooking for small groups.  

Each member of the workshop will be responsible for contributing their skills and knowledge during the day. We learn best by sharing. Some members will cook lunch for the group, some will be providing snacks and beverages. 

Arrive at least 15 minutes early so that we can start promptly at 8:30am. Alice reserves the right to move the workshop to more suitable site in case of unsafe weather or cancel by 6:30am on the day of the event. There must be a minimum of three participants for this workshop to run.

This event is a must do for future Registered Maine Guides for sea kayaking.
