Building An Easy Tarp Shelter

Good morning!

I found this great video showing the set up of an easy DIY tarp shelter. It even includes instructions on how to make it at the end.

This is really a great project for Scouts to do. It requires very little in the way of material needs and can be accomplished easily in a weekly meeting. Space wise it rolls down to a manageable size that fits well in a backpack or day pack. A big part of our program is teaching the youth to be prepared and this is an awesome addition to their emergency kit equipment list. I’m thinking that I might have the Venturers in our Group make a few to work out the details, then teach the Scouts how to make their own.

So have a look at the video and until next time…

Be safe, be prepared, and keep Scouting!
