Wilderness Survival Advanced

Course Overview

Knife and Flint
This course is designed to give Clients and objective way of assessing their current skill level before arming them with everything they’ll need to reliably survive a minimum of 72 hours in any austere wilderness environment. The first night begins with a simulated survival situation which puts you outdoors and exposed to the elements. Under the supervision of our Instructors, Clients will prioritize and address their survival needs and may ask for whatever assistance they need or tackle the challenges on their own. With that experience as a frame of reference, Clients will then receive world class lessons on the core survival skills before applying them to a second night outdoors to see how far they’ve improved in a short amount of time. This is an outstanding challenge for those with a background in the outdoors already, absolutely essential for any wilderness enthusiast, and a top notch experience for team and relationship building!
*Clients will spend two (2) nights outdoors.
