Ancient Pathways has been offering experientially-based courses in Wilderness Survival, Primitive Skills, and Bushcraft since 1989. Our approach is light on lecture and heavy on the application of practical skills. The best way to remain “civilized” is to get away from civilization for a while so check out our schedule and come join us for an adventure.
