Have you ever
felt like walking into the wilderness with a minimum of gear and
relying on your skills while foraging and depending on nature‘s
resources? This course goes beyond mere survival and shows
you the skills needed to live out in the wilds for an extended
period while creating what you need from your surroundings.
After establishing a primitive camp in the backcountry, we will
collect and fashion what we need during our stay in the
mountains in northern Arizona. Creating fire-by-friction,
locating water, collecting edible plants, learning to use a map
& compass, carving traps and throwing sticks, and sleeping in
handmade shelters are just a few of the skills that you will
learn and apply on a daily basis.
Gear consists of a wool blanket, poncho, water bottles, cooking
pot, and knife. Two meals a day are provided.
This is given as 4, 7, and 14 Day Courses.
