Rolling Ridge Study Retreat (near Harpers Ferry, WV)

Learn to make fire! Few skills bring as much satisfaction as the ability to make your own fire using materials found in the wild. In this class, participants will be guided in the construction of their own bow drill set and the mechanics of producing a successful fire. While it is not a guarantee that a fire will be made in your first day of working at friction fire, you will be given the tools and technique to develop a very grounding and empowering skill that has been the survival of our ancestors and tribes throughout time. All experience levels are welcome, and youth are welcome to attend with supervision of an accompanying adult.

$35; suggested donation

What to bring:

  • Sharp knife.
  • Lunch and snacks
  • Water bottle
