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.
