Come join us on a weekend getaway in the Conecuh National Forest. Enjoy a unique experience that you will always remember. All the while gaining insight and understanding of wilderness survival at the same time.
Bottom Line: This experience will allow you to walk a mile in their shoes so to speak. You will enjoy a mix of recreational camping, training, and a culminating experiential exercise that puts you in a realistic survival situation.
The event consist of Three (3) days and Two (2) Nights of training and recreation.
We begin the event with the attendees showing up at the campground and getting our base station set up for the weekend adventure. The first day is laid back and clients can show throughout the day as their schedule allows. By all means it’s great to show up early as we’re always looking to exploit everything as a learning opportunity, however day one is a fun day. Day two is when the action kicks off with the classes and training. Over the course of the weekend you will receive training and experience practical application exercises in the following categories:
Introduction to Survival and Survival Psychology
Procuring, Purifying and Filtering Water
Food Procurement and Gathering
Traps and Snares
Signals, Recovery and Rescue
Each training topic will be covered in detail and the clients will have ample opportunity to practice and succeed at related topical exercises. The course culminates with an experiential training event allowing you the opportunity to tie it all together!
The event is centered on being a fun and educational experience that you won’t forget. Though survival is the training focus the environment is one of relaxed camping with some experiential training mixed in. Great campfire food and drinks will be provided the entire event and there will be plenty of time for socializing and relaxing as well in the evenings.
You are welcome to bring your own camping supplies or utilize ours during the course of the event. If you have a tent feel free to bring it and set up, otherwise you can stay (with other guests) in an OGC provided tent(s). See packing list for more information.
