Survival Campout (November 7th-9th, 2008)

posted Oct 26, 2008, 7:10 PM by PV Shrikanth

Have you got what it takes to be a Troop 392 Survivor?

So you think you can survive in the Wilderness? Let’s find out! 

Your car breaks down in the wilderness, 100 miles from the nearest Jewel-Osco, COULD YOU SURVIVE? If you said “No way!” and you want to learn how, come to the Troop 392 Survival Challenge November 7 to 9 at Silver Springs State Fish and Wildlife Area in Yorkville, IL. You will learn shelter building, fire making, foraging, trapping, and other skills. Afterwards, you’ll be able to answer “Way!” to the question – you’ll be a Survivor.

Come with us to the Troop 392 Survival Challenge November 7 to 9 at Silver Springs State Fish and Wildlife Area in Yorkville, IL. 

Return Permission Slips available in the "Outing Forms & Information" section (link) or below this post by October 28th
