Hug-a-Tree

The RCMP Hug-a-Tree and Survive is an Adventure Smart Search and Rescue program aimed at children aged five to twelve.

It teaches basic survival skills that one day could save a child’s life by helping the child survive the elements and minimize the risk of defeating a search team’s rescue efforts.

It has as its purpose the goal of teaching them:

  • How not to become lost in the woods
  • What to do if they do become lost
  • How not to come to harm
  • How they can help searchers find them

Hug-A-Tree and Survive is a great program to bring into your family, classroom, guide or scout unit, youth group or any other community group interested in teaching kids about being safe. Please contact David Porteus or visit Adventure Smart for details.
