Survival 2 Thrival

Live on the wild side!

Experience Life

"As you build your gear from the land, you may wonder about those who used and relied on these skills. It really puts life into perspective"  Justin Thomas

During this course students will make many of the things they need from natural resources. You'll connect to the past through the skills you learn and get a glimpse of what life was like many centuries ago and gain new appreciation for the things we have.
