Our two day Bushcraft and Survival course provides our students with a bedrock of wilderness knowledge applicable to the hiker, hunter, and Soldier. 

We'll go through a very comprehensive course of instruction, including: wilderness first aid, tool selection and safety, fuel selection and processing, fire building, field hygiene, search and rescue, shelter construction, water sanitation, basic snaring, campsite selection, survival psychology, and recovery planning, along with real time 1 on 1 coaching from experienced Instructors during practical exercises.

Meet up instructions and further details will be emailed to you a week before class starts. 

Course registration will also CLOSE one week before class starts to avoid the logistical problems that come with last minute enrollments. Refunds are offered up until the day of registration closing. 

All food as well as fresh water is provided.

While this is a Survival course, we feel that being miserable during the course is an obstacle to learning. Therefore, we leave it up to the students how they would like to spend their night. If you would like to set up and sleep in the survival shelters we're going to teach you, then by all means get the full experience. If you would like to bring a tent or a rooftop tent, then feel free to do so as well. All students will practice our shelters, but you can sleep in whatever shelter you'd like.

Course held in Western Maryland.
