Trackers Earth is a local organization that runs outdoor programs for kids and adults. The rise of the living dead in a rural part of Sandy was part of their program. Of course, they realize that the chances of a zombie apocalypse are remote but that wasn’t the idea. The goal was to teach folks a thing or two about the outdoors and have a little fun while doing it.
This is not just playtime, though. The folks who camped out for the weekend learned important survival skills along the way – like how to build a fire without matches or a lighter, how to hunt and gather food and how to build a shelter to protect themselves from the elements.
