Teams start with limited gear. Tools and food may be awarded by completing challenges, which are based on the information on the website.
Team sizes of 3 to 5 will be built and units will be kept together.
Adults help with safety and are expected to NOT help teams. They must bring their own food and can bring any camping gear.
Consider VOLUNTEERING - staff have pretty easy jobs, help with safety, are provided food, can bring any gear, and it costs less.
The EVENT RULES must be followed at all times. There's a minimal amount of rules to allow teams to be creative. Violations of the rules can be pretty strict.
In order to complete the challenges, teams will rely on their knowledge and perform the correct actions. Instead of explaining what you would do, participants demonstrate skills.
