Create a memorable day for you alone or together with your children. Begin by selecting the “perfect” stick to make your very own hiking staff from ones collected by the instructor. Then you will learn how to “shave” and carve your very own personalized hiking stick. Once you are happy with your creation, you complete it by drilling a hole and adding a lanyard. After lunch, you can take one of several breathtaking hikes near the school using your very own stick! During the morning session you will learn what to take on a hike, how to dress to enjoy the day, trail etiquette, and things to look for. Not only is this a great introduction to simple woodcarving and the beauty of the Southern Adirondacks, but you’ll also create some wonderful memories.
Fee = $30 + $5 for materials.
