Have you ever wondered which knots are most appropriate for a specific problem? Have you woken up in a wet tent because the knot you used to tie down your rainfly didn't hold through the storm? Then this is the class for you! This class will introduce you to five important camping knots: the overhand and figure 8 on a bight, bowline, stopper knot, clove hitch and the bear bag hang.
