Youth & Family Classes!

Currently Booking for 2024!

Space is Filling Fast! Don't Miss Out!

Discounted Pricing Ends Soon!

During and after the Covid pandemic we lowered our prices to help families continue to afford these classes. We wanted to make sure that youth and families still had access to what we believe are important learning and personal growth opportunities! Thanks for continuing with us in classes through a hard time for many. 

 The time has come to move our prices back up to standard tuition rates. We hope that as we move our pricing back up you understand that we only do so in order to be able to continue to offer these classes. Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you this year!

Discounted Pricing Ends 05/01/24

* For anyone who has booked with us under the special pricing, we will continue to honer those rates.

Our home school classes came about when we noticed a drop in youth attending scouting and looking for alternate outdoor programs. We wanted to help families and youth have the opportunity to get out in nature and learn valuable skills. The classes are designed to fit into your school routine and curriculum. We are connected with My Tech High & Harmony Education! We are also exited to soon be linked as an approved vendor with Utah education Fits All! 

Why Survival Classes?

These classes not only teach wilderness living skills, but build confidence and independence in your youth and teens.

 In a world of electronics and online learning, we believe youth need more opportunities where they can be outdoors with friends and family, learning valuable skills that help them grow into the amazing people they are! 

 We know as parents you want that too, that's why so many families have joined the homeschooling classes! Scroll down to learn more!


We have a full list of classes in our curriculum that are sure to be engaging and interactive. Each class is filled with hands-on learning. Families and Groups pick the classes that are most interesting to them and create their own curriculum schedule. We wanted to keep this opportunity affordable, that's why group and family pricing is $125 per family each month & includes two 4-hour classes every month booked. That is a ridiculously low price!

We prioritize the safety and well-being of our students. Our classes are conducted with proper safety measures in place.
