Build a flagpole, table or chair for your camp
Give your average camper a set of spars and a coil of rope, and in return you’ll most likely get only a puzzled look.
But present those same materials to a pioneering expert and you’ll get chairs, tables, bridges and all kinds of equipment that’s useful in the outdoors.
Here’s how to build three items — a chair, a flagpole and a table — that could be useful around camp. Click on the pictures for detailed instructions and how-to videos.
Show your colors by building a flagpole for your camp.
Keep your stuff out of the dirt by building a table for your camp.
Relax around camp by building a comfortable chair.
how would you build a chair without the cloth? just curious
now i don’t have to sit at the rickety wooden tables!
I’m making the table next year at summer camp!
cool! though If yu lower the table you could make it a seat or bench, if you widen it.
can u use the table as a bed?
Yes just find trees that are wider apart
Very useful stuff. Chair is very simple but cumfee so is table. 🙂
definitely gonna use the chair
that flagpole was cool, im gonna make one
flagpoles are harder to make than u think they take forever with a group
the flag pole & the chair are probably the esayest ones
Useful stuff, it’s great to actually “make” stuff instead of just watching others…
It sounds really great but also very hard
P.S. I really need to try this!!!
I made the flag pole yesterday and it’s still standing today! This is the longest time anything i’ve made has stayed together between it breaking and my parents telling me to take it down!
How about “Build Your Own” Shelters?
Go to a survival course, take notes / pics, and send to BL MAG.
Check out the wilderness Survival & Pioneering merit badge pams

the flag pole is in the handbook but I like the chair and the table.

The chair looks so comfortable.

It finally makes sense!
Our computer won’t show us all of the video.How do I know how they put up the flag pole?And wy does it say I am posting the comment to fast?
That decreases the pack load!
I should try that
at summer camp
it was so much fun
we made a watch tower. up in scotland.
and a zipwire.
they are just made of a frames and square lashings
The series of videos are instructive enough for one to build the flagpole, table or chair for a camp site. We thank the producers for their effort to educate us, thank you.
these instructions will be very helpful in me getting my first class rank
