This one-day course is designed to better prepare students to the reality of short-term survival and emergencies in the great outdoors.
This course focuses heavily on skills using minimal kit.
Grounded in the possible and probable, this course addresses the basics of survival and the core needs of security, shelter, water, fire, signaling/communication, and more. After a short introduction in the classroom to cover mindset and kit layout/staging, students will move to the field and get hands-on practice of traditional bushcraft and modern survival skills to include carving, knot tying, tarp setups, and other related skills.
