Put away your smartphone, it’s time to learn the skills and technology of our ancestors. Try to make a fire using only friction. Learn how to make rope from natural fibers. Practice using an ancient spear thrower called an atlatl. Use stone blades for making sparks and cutting meat to roast over a fire. Don’t miss this journey back to the Stone Age, where history comes alive ($5 materials fee is included in this camp price.)
