Hug-A-Tree & Survive Program

The Avalon North Wolverines Search & Rescue is offering the official Hug-A-Tree program to our area. It is a great program to help educate children from Kindergarten to Grade 5.

Originally developed in the United States following the search for Jimmy Beveridge in 1981, Hug-a-Tree and Survive was adapted for Canadian use by the RCMP.

This RCMP search and rescue initiative is helping lost children survive in the woods. The Canadian version of Hug a Tree and Survive is modeled after an American project which teaches children aged five to 12 about basic outdoor survival.

A Hug a Tree presentation involves an educational video, along with coloring book handouts and a talk/question and answer session from several certified members from our team.

Please note the presentation takes from 1-2 hours depending on age of audience and size of group.

If you would like to request a presentation to be done within your school, or organization please follow this link and fill out the form. To schedule a presentation, please fill out our presentation request:
