Base Camp Essentials

Go Prepared Into The Wild

Learning & Experience

Our Base Camp Course teaches the basics of survival with a main focus on wilderness living skills. 


 This course takes place in  a base camp setting and allows students to learn a wide range of skills in a camp-like setting without the need to camp every night and travel long distances. Students can camp in their shelters they build or bring a tent. Each day will be around 6 hours of instruction, & we will have 1 hour for lunch each day. Students are responsible for their own meals and food, however we will provide water and coffee.

Being Prepared

This course is designed to give students the skills and knowledge in order to not hit the internal panic button, but instead remain calm and fall back on the skills learned throughout this course to find your way out and back to safety, or have the skills to stay put and wait for rescue.
