Extreme Survival

Course Information

Take this chance to challenge yourself and get a glimpse of what it really means to live off of the land. During this course you will immerse yourself in the necessary skills to survive in the wilderness with little to no equipment. With only the items listed below you will build your own shelter, craft additional tools, make fire, purify water, forage for food, and more.
