Sulphur Springs: Primitive Campfire Building

March 18, 2016 - 9:30am to 10:30am

Out of matches? Don't worry. You can start a campfire without matches if you have the right items.

How do you start a campfire without matches? Attend this program at Honey Creek Amphitheater and find out how to use materials around you to create a spark that can light your fire without using a lighter or a match. It's easier than you think! It will also give you the edge if you ever get picked to play Survivor! The technique of using a bow and drill will be demonstrated as well as flint and steel. This program may be cancelled because of weather. Contact the Park Office at (903) 945-5256 for updated information regarding this program.
