Summer School 2022: Day 4

Crackling flames and billowing smoke announced success as students kindled fires this afternoon.

Fire is an essential survival tool, especially in the winter. Though fire starters and lighters are handy to keep around, cadets learned how to build a fire with only matches and locally-gathered wood. By the end of the class, many cadets had excellent blazes going. The students then learned to properly extinguish their fires.
