Time & Location

Oct 09, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Science Museum of Long Island, 1526 N Plandome Rd, Manhasset, NY 11030, USA


First, we'll meet in the museum for a quick crash course. Learn the many types of survival shelters and the dos-and-don'ts of building them, then explore what you'll need for an effective fire and how to choose the right one for your purposes.  With some new information under your belt, venture out to our preserve to put your new skills to the test! Will your family build a strong shelter using only what they find there? Can you work together to build a fire that burns long enough to toast a marshmallow? Find out during this Sunday morning workshop!  *Please dress appropriately for the outdoors
