The Craft of Fire Making




Sliding Scale Course Fees  |  Women’s Wilderness has created a sliding scale for all its Women’s programs in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people.  All our pricing scales are significantly below the prices of for-profit companies. The top price represents the actual cost to run the course, and the second two tiers represent scholarships.  We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.

Campers, hikers, outdoor folk, back country skiers! Anyone with an interest in mastering the art of fire! Come dive into the world of fire! How different woods burn and why; understanding the fire triangle, different ways to ignite tinder; what natural and man-made tinder is available; the many uses of fire; the stages of fire craft; different fire lays for various purposes; principles of friction fire and so much more.

Come with any fire starters and questions you may have and dressed to MAKE FIRE!
