Student Review of 2013 Winter Wilderness Living Skills Course

If you have ever questioned your ability to survive a wilderness emergency, these courses may be of interest to you. Seasonally oriented, they are designed to provide hands-on training in the skills of modern survival. Practicing skills in a natural environment builds an appreciation and understanding of Nature on its own terms. As far as possible, survival skills are integrated with environmental awareness so that one eventually becomes physically and mentally comfortable in the natural wilderness.  New dates have been posted for the upcoming 2017 winter course.
