This weekend long course is for anyone who plans on finding him or herself in the wilderness for any reason. Our students are hunters, hikers, backpackers, motorcyclists, off roaders, and adventurers.
You will learn basic wilderness living techniques as well as the essential skills and priorities of the first 48 hours of an emergency survival situation. All topics will be instructed through demonstration and hands-on experience. Take this chance to challenge yourself and learn the necessary skills to get out alive.
Note that this course is able to accommodate beginning levels of skill, but all students must be able to hike at least five miles. If you or someone in your group is totally new to the outdoors this is a great place to start. This course also has much to offer to the seasoned outdoorsman.
