This course will give you a working knowledge of ancient techniques that transform mere survival into a sustainable outdoor existence.
Our skilled instructors take a hands-on approach to teaching you how to use materials from your natural surroundings to construct functional tools and handcrafted wares from scratch that will make it possible for you to replace the modern stuff on your next wilderness adventure.
These essential skills will become lifesavers if you happen to need an extra piece of rope for the tent or forget the cooking pots or lose a knife while out in the wilds.
