Event Details

The standard teaches people who are new to the survival community the most important basic skills in a wilderness survival situation. Shelter, Water, Fire, Food, Tools! The survival standard is very comprehensive and covers a multitude of different subjects about wilderness survival with or without modern equipment. This class is very intensive and is almost entirely hands on with very little lecture time. Most of the five days will actually be spent doing physical work and you will practice building and using all the skills/items listed below.  So you should be prepared to deal with inclement weather, bugs, animals, poison ivy, and other things that will add to your discomfort. This course is the first step in learning how to be completely self reliant in the wilderness and the rest of our wilderness survival standard course will complete your transformation.  Check our Wilderness Survival Certification page for more info.
