Winter Count 2014

The Elemental Awareness Foundation staff rolls out to Winter Count every year to spend a week in the Desert outside of Phoenix, AZ. Winter Count is one of the largest gathering of wilderness guides, outdoor enthusiasts and primitive living practitioners. Some come to the gathering to prep for the Zombie Apocalypse while others are there to learn the ancient ways of living. We spend the week learning new skills to take back with us to teach at skate camp through the Elemental Awareness Wilderness Program. Campers will learn shelter building, fire by friction, water purification and natural foraging for food. Check out the photos from our week out in Arizona and be sure to sign up for Element YMCA Skate Camp this summer.

Thanks to all the kids and teachers for having us out for the day!

In honor of the Dr.’s message of giving back to your community and treating each other with kindness, we decided to act locally and hook up the kids at MLK Skate Park in Long Beach with some much needed skateboards. It’s the small things that we do everyday that can make the largest impact on the world.
