Event Details

The Wilderness Self Reliance Weekend is a weekend course designed to cover the basic necessary knowledge one should have on even the most simple outing into the wild.

Hunters, hikers, naturalists, travelers, or anyone doing anything in the back country will find this course a helpful compliment to their own skills sets and knowledge.

We will cover preparedness, survival mentality, emergency shelters, fire starting through several modern and primitive methods, water gathering and purification, navigation, weather prediction, basic survival food gathering, hunting and trapping, and more. The goal of the course is to provide a practical primer for students so that they will feel more confident and ready to deal with meeting their own needs in the case of emergency.

This course is also a great way for people to get a sense of the skills our school covers and provide a basic foundation from which to take other courses. All skill levels welcome.

*Please note that camping is welcomed with plenty of sites available. We also have a simple outdoor kitchen for you to use.
