Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Steven M. Watts, (click his name to see a photo of Steve), the Master of all things related to classic camping, traditional camping and woodcraft, recently released his “Kamp Kephart” workshop schedule for 2016.


Sadly, I’m already quite late in posting this notice as I have been informed that the February 27th/28th Workshops –  Nessmuk’s KIt Bag &  The Aleut Pack Harness and the October 2nd Workshop – The Woodsman’s Bag  are already full! 

In addition, the March 13th Workshop – Frontier Fire  has only a few openings left.  Here is the Workshop Schedule ~

Kamp Kephart ~ Classic Camping Workshops

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Classic camper and woodcraft mentor and friend Steve Watts has released the schedule for the Kamp Kephart series of skill workshops for 2014.

If you live near Gastonia, NC or can make it out there – DO NOT miss the opportunity to learn from a Master woodsman.  As you may know, Steve and David Wescott are working on an up-to-date series of traditional camping “how-to” books.  Called the “Classic Camping” series, the first of seven planned books are currently in the works.  To attend one of these workshops would be akin to attending a workshop conducted by Horace Kephart, Ernest Thompson Seton or Dan Beard a century ago.

The workshops are one-day affairs that are affordable and teach skills that are rarely offered as part of a short course curriculum.  Just look at the skills being offered next year –

Oh – if I lived close enough to attend!
