The Survival Essentials Course lays the groundwork for a lifetime of wilderness living enjoyment. A combination of lecture, demonstration, discussion, and hands-on training, the Survival Essentials Course examines your immediate needs during a survival situation and how they relate to living with the land long term, and at the same time building a common vocabulary for the outdoors person to continue their education. Whether you want to reconnect with your ancestors, survive in the bush, or experience nature more fully, The Survival Essentials Course is a step in the journey to better understanding ourselves. This course is designed around our immediate needs from the environment. Most survival situations are over in less than 72 hours. However, this course aims to take the student past mere survival into the realm of living with the land. Covering the topics of shelter, water, fire, food, and tools, each day we will explore both primitive and modern techniques for meeting your needs efficiently.
