We designed our Basic Survival Class to provide students with the knowledge to survive a 3 day emergency scenario. The items within your kit will be discussed and used, to aid yourself and others in emergency situations. We will give you the skills and knowledge to be able to use and or make Fire, Shelter, Water, Food.
As your instructors, it is our goal to help you have the HOPE and the DETERMINATION to survive!
Basic Survival is not an easy course, it is designed to get your body and mind moving. The class is structured to give you the skills to think and prepare yourself for an emergency if one should arrive.
This class is designed to get you to think outside the box. You can expect to walk carrying your gear, along with collected materials as needed for projects.There will be no extensive hiking or physical exertion, just a nice walk in the woods.
You will learn how to live with Nature, and how Nature can help you in your times of need.
The Basic Class is the fundamental core, from which all other survival classes, and their accumulating skills, are built upon.
Bring any and all medications for personal use including bug sprays (especially those that repel ticks) as well as first aid items that are appropriate for the outdoor environment (especially items for poison ivy)
If you suffer from a medical condition or chronic pain, please bring your prescribed medicines with you. If you have recently undergone surgery or a hospital stay within the last 30 days, DO NOT attempt this course.
