Using a Tarp to pitch a survival tent - A classic scouting activity is to pitch a tent (an A-frame shelter) using nothing more than a tarp, a tree, cordage and skills in putting it together. Be sure to make your shelter breathable! The purpose of the tarp is to keep away the baking sun and shelter you from the pouring rain or snow. It's not to be air tight (or you won't be able to breathe). Another method is the tarp combined with a pole which is popular in the bush.
