Join us for a wilderness survival class for kids!

Would you know what to do if you got lost in the wilderness? Join SOS Adventures Master Outdoor Leader Joey Rios and learn the skills you’ll need to stay alive and get found! This will be a fun and interactive course designed to teach kids the skills they’ll need to be confident and safe if they ever get lost outdoors. Activities will include games, demonstrations and instruction, followed by a short hike. Program open to all kids ages 6-to-14; all minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian; no pets please. Reservations required and will be accepted through Noon Friday April 28, 2017. Class size limited to the first 20 kids who sign up. Sorry, no group reservations. Include name of each participant, age if under 18, e-mail address and telephone number for each reservation. For more information, e-mail or call (210) 688-9055; ext. 2009. Natural Area entrance fees apply; program subject to cancellation.

The fine print

IMPORTANT: Be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of this program; if the natural area is experiencing unusually heavy visitation you may get caught waiting in line to get past the Fee Booth, and we’d hate for you to be late to the program! Dress for the weather; bring plenty of water, a snack and sun protection. Meet at the Exhibit Gallery next to the Visitor Center.

Limited to 20 participants.

Sorry, we have reached our maximum number of participants for this event.
