G.A.L.A. Presents a Free Youth Track Program
Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.) is excited to announce the first workshop in a new youth track of their popular Re-skill-ience Workshop Series. This year G.A.L.A. will offer several workshops geared toward engaging nine through sixteen year-olds in the same homesteading, sustainable living, and traditional outdoor skills that have defined G.A.L.A.’s ongoing workshop series. These hands-on classes are designed to help participants develop skills and knowledge that strengthen personal and community resilience, this time with a focus on engaging youth.
The first workshop in the series is the basics of Outdoor Campfire Cooking. There’s nothing quite like being out on the trail and sitting around a fire eating a hearty meal. In this workshop youth, and parents who choose to attend, will learn the in’s and outs of open fire cooking with cast iron and reflector ovens, as well as get an insight into cooking with solar power. Participants will learn best to carry food on trail, methods for prepping food for multiple day trips, and a few real crowd pleasers (Can you say cinnamon raisin bannock?). Participants are asked to please let G.A.L.A. know of any dietary restrictions, and to bring a healthy appetite.
This workshop takes place on Saturday, July 15th from 3pm -6pm at 267 Camp School Rd in Wolfeboro, NH. The workshop will be led by Christopher Russell of Jack Mountain Bushcraft’s School Of The Forest program, a youth outdoor education program that focuses on camp and outdoor skills, as well as taking a hands-on approach to ecology with the hope that students leave the courses with a deeper understanding of where they fit into the ecosystem they’re a part of everyday.
This workshop is being offered for free thanks to the generous support from an anonymous donor advised fund of the NH Charitable Foundation. Space is limited to 15 participants. Pre-registeration is required HERE or by calling 603-539-6460.
We hope you can make it! Please spread the word!
