SURVIVAL SKILLS:
FIRE BY FRICTION

CHECK SCHEDULE & BOOK


Learn to Make a Fire Using a Bamboo Fire Saw

At Coastal Expeditions, we try and tap into our wild side regularly through immersing ourselves in the creeks, rivers, forests, and beaches of the Lowcountry. We invite anyone with adventure on their mind to come learn how to thrive in these environments without the modern conveniences of today's world.

We are starting a series of survival skills classes beginning with the most important: How to start a fire! Wilderness guide and survivalist Kevin Regan is leading these classes, starting with the versatility of a plant that grows nearly everywhere today, bamboo! Learn how to start, maintain and cook on a fire make by friction using bamboo cane.  This can be a hugely educational experience, fun for families, or the individual looking to enhance their outdoor skills.

Class:  Saturday, November 12, 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. at Huger Landing Park
