    Training Hollow/River

    Outside Sandclan's camp, lays the Training Hollow, where Apprentice's and Mentor's may train to the best of their ability. The sandy clearing doesn't just provide good spacing for training, but vast undergrowth for prey to hide in. A River cuts along the edge, stepping Stones along the flowing, cool waters. Here, Sandclan Apprentice's will learn to swim, fish, and battle with water. ••Sandclan Territory
