2 Day Essential Wilderness Survival Course
The 2 day Essential Wilderness Survival course teaches students the basics of survival. This class is designed to develop the skills needed to survive a 72 hour emergency situation. There are two days of instruction with an optional third day to enjoy yourself around camp. Set up your tent and spend the night, fish from our lake after each class, hike our beautiful trails, and relax at our central camp fire. If classes aren’t being taught in our demonstration shelters you are welcome to use them and try your skills at spending a night in a primitive shelter.
