While our Brownies Hug-A-Tree and Survive presentation got cancelled we were able to rearrange the dates for the Sparks and had another presenter come to do the presentation. If you've never heard of the program Hug-A-Tree and Survive I encourage you to check it out: Hug a Tree Website
The presentations are available for free from an organization called AdventureSmart and they are really well done. Each presentation explores how to prepare for hiking and what to do if you were to get lost in the forest. The presentation consists of what a search and rescue team is, a video about what to do if you were to get lost and how/what you should pack before going out to explore.
Our presenter was very knowledgable and was happy to answer the many, many......many questions that my Sparks had. He even had a gift for them at the end, Emergency whistle, reflective cards and emergency blankets for them to pack in their bags the next time we go hiking.
Thanks Adventure Smart!
