Kamp Kephart 2014

Organized through The Schiele Museum in Gastonia, NC, Kamp Kephart is a workshop series of Classic Camping Skills taught by Steve Watts.  As our good friend Steve says,

“…without the context, it’s just arts & crafts.”

Let me tell you, not only do you learn and apply the skills in Kamp Kephart, you get an entertaining history lesson too!  While the primary focus is Classic Camping, Steve’s vast knowledge of primitive technology, frontier history, Nordic culture, current practices in other cultures and more always find their way into the lesson as well.

And you can’t beat the camaraderie among those camping at Kamp Kephart.  Plan on making some great friends.

Classes fill up very quickly, so if you are interested, I suggest you register right away.  Click KAMP_KEPHART_14 to see the details and download the PDF form.
