Intro to Survival Camp

This camp is an exciting adventure in experimenting with nature.  Instructors with a background in survival and primitive skills use games and scenarios to introduce campers to common but fun and challenging skills.  Campers work in teams to solve problems such as how to stay warm and dry in bad weather,  basic fire building skills, simple traps and various ways to make rope.  Fun games that require campers to learn stealthy movement are a big part of each day.   The goal of this camp is to develop social skills and self esteem and to have a lot of fun doing it.

Advanced Survival Camp

This course takes Wilderness Survival to a whole new level.  Campers use increasingly complicated scenarios such as being lost, accidents in remote places, dealing with natural disasters (including the Zombie Apocalypse) to develop real survival, disaster response and primitive skills.  Improvised and natural shelters, broad approaches to contemporary and primitive fire building, various traps and food gathering/ID techniques as well as orienteering and navigation are taught in detail by experienced survival and primitive skills practitioners. Other more advanced skills (tracking, wilderness medicine, cooking, cordage, stone tools etc.) are introduced as time allows.  The class emphasizes the development of teamwork, leadership and decision making skills as necessary to performing well when resources are few.
