Bushcraft Pioneer Maker Camp
in Albert Lea, MN
Once your basic human needs are met, it's time to start thinking about securing those needs, finding more comfort, and progressing along the path towards self actualization and wellness.
This is where many of our pioneer ancestors found themselves in their everyday lives. Long term structures, better cooking conditions, but there's still much work to do.
We'll put a lot of time into building a long term cabin-esque structure. As well as tanning a hide and field dressing and cooking a rabbit or chicken (participation in this activity not required).
- Build a long term shelter with larger logs and more living space with semi-primitive methods.
- Work with fire, primitive cordage, lashing, stacking and more to stabilize a longer term structure.
- Build pioneer style camp kitchen and camp cook often.
- Gain skills to safely use more advanced tools such as hand saws, hatchets, and machetes.
