Shelter Building: Build a simple yet effective A frame or Lean-To shelter, learn how to set up a tarp
Natural Cordage: Making string from plant fibres
Foraging: Learning to identify edible, medicinal, and poisonous plants, identify trees and learn tree uses.
Water preparation: Worthwhile knowledge if you're travelling and venturing out into wild places.
