Shelter Building

Test survival skills by working in teams to create shelters that withstand the harshest elements!

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 3-12

Our Shelter Building Incursion provides an opportunity for students to develop their team building skills by working towards the common goal of building a strong outdoor shelter. Students will be required to design their shelter so that it works within their budget and considers various design elements including suitability of materials. Not only that, their shelter must protect the whole group from the harshest weather conditions including Hurricane Supreme!

Students will learn about various types of human-made and natural shelters and discover why they are built the way they are. Students will need to use their Shelter Building money wisely and brainstorm needs vs wants as well as working out refunds and exchanges. This requires communication, negotiation and team work to complete the task. This team based incursion is lots of outdoor fun for everyone!
