These classes are for the person who wants to:
            - be prepared if they are ever lost / stranded       
            - the person who wants to be more self- sustaining / self-reliance 
            -
simply want to take less equipment on hikes and camping trips.  

   No previous experience is necessary, just willingness to learn new things and a desire to have fun doing it.  Survival in the wilderness is not difficult or uncomfortable …

- IF DONE RIGHT! 

Our ancestors, from cavemen through the Native Americans, knew how to thrive using only what Nature provided.  Now you can learn what they knew and master these outdoor skills in a few short days.   

Our philosophy during the class is that a person must be well rested, well fed, and having fun, to learn.  So regardless of which class you choose you will learn new things, eat very good meals, and have fun the entire time. 
Guaranteed or your money back!

What you will Learn will depend on the length of the class you decide to take, but here are the range of skills you CAN learn
 

Ø       The class will begin with learning the “One Match Fire”, a technique invaluable for both survival situations and your next outdoor barbeque.  You will b e taught various Fire Lays how to make a fire without matches next using the traditional Flint and Steel Method. 

Ø       You will be shown the most effective Outdoor Shelter available – the “Debris Hut” – a shelter with a temperature range of –10oF to +90oF.   The class will build one from start to finish. 

Ø       Water Purification techniques with both natural and man-made will be covered in detail.  Differences between Water filters and water purifiers will be discussed.  

Ø       Other topics such as Knife Sharpening (for both hunting and kitchen knives), Food Procurement and Cooking Techniques will be covered.

             fire (the” rubbing 2 sticks together” technique)
