The first material priority in survival is climate protection. This includes centrally the ability to build a weather protection according to the conditions. To keep the heat loss as small as possible, the details become important.  During these days we will learn to build different shelters. The topics will be:
- Reflector construction for one to many people
- building waterproof roof from natural materials
- shelters heated with body heat to stone heating
- Quick shelters for the nomad
- Insulation performance comparison
- camouflaged shelters
- Making underlay mats
