Skills Night-Tamihi Rapids September 20-21, 2019

The first Comm Rec outing of the year saw 47 people brave the Great Outdoors to experience Skills Night. Students spent the night practicing outdoor skills such as setting up tents, fire-starting, water treatment, trail management, backpacking basics, and cooking over burners. Highlights of the trip included the high volume of international students in attendance, learning that heavy packs and long walks don’t mix, and hanging out on the river shore. Extreme Outdoor Education students (and anyone else who wants to) leave a 100 word response below.

    I believe that the skills night was a perfect way to kick of the year with. I enjoyed setting up the tent and cooking my meal which tasted disgusting by the way. I also enjoyed helping others with my knowledge of camping and overall it was a really fun experience an specially watching parker take a flip in the puddle.
