Wilderness Skills Intensive

Develop a more intimate connection with nature while learning the four most important elements in wilderness survival: shelter, water, fire, and food. Gain additional experience in natural cordage, stone tools, containers, wild edibles, tracking, nature awareness, primitive cooking, and more! This 2-day intensive course is designed to teach you the basics of wilderness survival, starting with nothing.  Conquering the earth is not our goal. Instead, we will combine both physical and spiritual aspects of living with the earth to improve your survival skills.  We will introduce you to the entire “circle of skills” and help you find ways to incorporate them into your everyday life. Hands-on learning will be maximized with a variety of fun individual and group activities and games!

“It gave me new eyes and a new appreciation for the intricacies and interdependence of nature and life surrounding me.”
