Victor Shelden from Primitive Pursuits in Ithica, NY is our newest instructor. He mentored and taught groups of children between the ages of 5 and 13 wilderness survival skills, primitive living, connection with the earth and nature, and how to establish a tight-knit community feel. Inspired children to be curious about the natural world and aware of their relationship with the environment. ⋅ Gained CPR, AED, and Response to Emergency First Aid certifications.
Victor was also an Earth Arts Instructor at Earth Arts, Ithaca, NY, where he ran nature based mentoring programs connecting participants to a deeper sense of self and the natural world, taught wilderness awareness and naturalist skills and instructed workshops in which participants harvest materials to create natural art, crafts, tools, food, and shelter.
We are very happy to have Victor as part of the UKA family!
