Whether you are skiing the Rockies, hiking Zion, or rafting the Colorado, the fact is, if you spend time in the back country you always run the risk of being in a emergency situation & far from help. At Wilderness Wild we want YOU to have the skills to turn any emergency situation into an unplanned camping trip.

Give your family the outdoor time they deserve while learning valuable skills & making memories. Our Home school classes offer families and groups the opportunity to design, create, and participate in wilderness survival and primitive living skills classes!

Life is busy, we know how it is. That doesn't mean you cant learn the skills you've been dreaming about though! Take a day class and dive into some of the most important skills like friction fire, cordage, and traps & snares. Join an existing class or contact us to schedule your own custom class today!

Online Learning - coming soon

We know how busy life gets, but that shouldn't keep you from learning the skills needed to survive an emergency or live minimally. 

 At only a fraction of the costs of our in person classes and courses, our online courses will teach you valuable skills and prepare you to thrive at home and in the wild.
