Local youth encouraged to attend survival course

October 24, 2017 by  

A Dundas-based organic farm will be hosting an outdoor preparedness course later this month, for all interested Stoney Creek and Hamilton-based teens.

Survival skills for both manmade emergencies and natural disasters will be taught, including how to remain in your home and how to evacuate an affected area, should it be necessary.

Students will learn how to prepare an emergency readiness kit that includes the necessities of life, such as water, food, shelter and clothing. What is required per person in their home and how much should be in their kit will be discussed on the day. Printing services may be used to provide each student with checklists outlining the suggested supplies required for their homes, cars and personal belongings.

Canteen Destiny operates a non-profit organic farm located at 1050 Highway 5 West, in Dundas. The course will be held on Saturday October 28th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, at a cost of $35.00 per person.

This charitable organization has adopted a mission to prepare young people to become future leaders. Young people who attend its programs are challenged physically, spiritually and mentally, through the holistic approach the counsellors at Canteen Destiny employ. Teens leave better prepared to overcome the many challenges of life and succeed in their future endeavors.

Teens must register for this survival course by Wednesday October 25th. To register, visit the company’s website, call 705-430-0554, or email canteendestiny@gmail.com.
