Grayson Giles, 16,  will be leading this class to build your child’s skills for outdoor survival. He has been honing his outdoor skills since he was 7 years old. He has experience in pioneer skills and hunting in backwoods areas of Florida with FWC, State of Georgia and family in Pennsylvania. There will be adult supervision right alongside Grayson for each class. Each class will be outdoors. Closed-toe shoes and appropriate attire to get dirty and or wet each week.

This is a unique and personalized experience for each child. Friendship, responsibility, safety and an appreciation for nature will be developed during this class session.

Participants should bring each week:

Pocket knife or multitool

Grayson has a recommendation for this knife if you do not have one. Morakniv Knife
