Keely's farm is a 20 acre farm tucked away just outside of Leesport PA with woods,thickets and open fields it has a creek running through it and is a beautiful property for us to enjoy.
Come on out for a weekend getaway to learn and practice your survival skills and learn new skills, the plan is to arrive at Keely's farm on Friday night 4 PM and after,set up camp and be ready bright and early Saturday to have some fun.
This weekend will be loosely organized what I mean by that is we can go over any survival or primitive skill the majority of the group would like to do be it primitive fire, making primitive tools, shelter building, water collection and purification (primitive or modern) trapping and snares, wild edibles, whatever skill set the group wants to do this is your weekend to tell us (organizers and instructors) what you want!
We do have somethings planned for this weekend first thing planned is to have a class on firearm safety and once we all understand the safety of firearms we will be using a black powder rifle and be instructed on how to load this firearm and how to use it safely also how to reload ammo.
We also will be doing primitive and modern fire making in depth and be instructed on the making of nets ... nets are very useful in a survival situation they can be used to trap, fish and even carry gear.
