On March 19th 2015, Elemental Awareness took a hand full young adults who have expressed interest or are currently working with youth up to Element Skate Camp for a 4 day camping retreat. The weekend was full of Skating, workshops, hiking and storytelling around the fire. While we were at Element Skate Camp, the camp facilities such as water, electricity and bathrooms were unavailable. This means we had to pack our own water, food, tents and toiletries. This made for a more rustic camping experience than normal. We started the weekend as individuals excited for the weekend and left friends who have shared experiences and shared goals for the future. Thanks so much for everyone who was involved in making this trip a success.
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. They come out to the Sonoran Desert to get away from technology and explore ancient ways of living closer to the source of life. 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. For more information on Winter Count, click here!
Special thanks to Tom McElroy and Dylan Christopher for all the amazing photos!
Elemental Awareness visited our friends at the Palm Springs Skatepark and Community Center. Kids brought their used skateboard decks, trucks, wheels and hardware and we built completes for less fortunate kids. We also held a fire demo using the ancient method of the bow drill to create a friction fire…which we also skated. A ton of other fun activities and contests were held for the kids and a great time was had by all. Thanks to Rob and the Palm Springs Community center for having us out. Also a special thanks goes out to The Mountain Tees for providing tee shirts for everyone in attendance.
