One, Two or Three-Day Trips
Come learn the basic primitive skills and wilderness survival that all our ancestors shared. Tap into your right of passage as a human being and creature of the earth.
LEVEL ONE: Intro to Primitive Skills
This 2-day, 1 night class introduces you to the “Sacred Order of Survival.” You will learn the basics— from building shelter, purifying water, and making fire by friction to finding food in the wilderness. You will sleep in a tent and cook supplied food over a fire and camp stove. An equipment list will be provided.
LEVEL TWO: Advanced Primitive Skills*
This is a 2-day, 1-night, intensive skills class. Unlike Level One, you will NOT bring a tent to this class. We will build shelters, make our fire by friction, and purify our water. Food will still be provided — however we will spend more time foraging, and the cooking will be over a fire. You are allowed to bring a sleeping bag to use in your shelter. An equipment list will be provided.
*Course prerequisite: LEVEL ONE
LEVEL THREE: Weekend Survival*
From Friday evening until Sunday evening we will survive using the skills gained from Levels One and Two, with only a small pack. All you will have with you is a knife, a bottle of water, and the clothes you have on! There will be NO food brought in with us. All food, if any, will be foraged from the area or caught from the waters or forest around us. Your level of confidence and awareness will skyrocket after this class! You will have a new sense ofindependence and freedom, and gain new perspective on your everyday choices and lifestyle.
*Course prerequisite: LEVEL TWO
