Wilderness Survival Techniques       $265.00



A 2 1/2 day course designed to cover the survival basics while enjoying a wilderness setting. Participants are instructed in the principles of survival, have the skills demonstrated, and then gain hands on experience practicing these skills. All class sessions are held outdoors in the Rocky Mountain Wilderness, where the validity of each theory may be shown more effectively. Some classes may be modified as they progress due to the unpredictability of nature and weather.

Not just another cut and dried class, student participation and interaction is strongly encouraged as each skill set is introduced. Our main focus in this course is to have you listen to the theory, watch the skill, and then learn the skill by doing...
