“Primitive technology is our inheritance. It is a shared thread that links us to our prehistory and binds us all together as human beings.” – Steve Watts, President of the Society of Primitive Technology
Step back in time with us and spend a day outdoors learning the ancient skills and wilderness wisdom that our ancestors used to meet their basic living needs of shelter, water, fire & food on a daily basis.
Taught by an expert staff of survivalists & naturalists, our one day core survival skills clinic is a fast paced “learn by doing” adventure that will help you understand the mechanics of daily living in an outdoor environment without the modern conveniences of things like tents, sleeping bags, water filters, cooking pots, & supermarkets.
Appropriate for all ages, this class provides a solid foundation for both the camping novice as well as the seasoned outdoorsmen to gain the outdoor skills and understanding necessary to turn your wilderness surroundings from enemy to ally.
Skills & topics covered in the Core Survival Skills Clinic include:
Friction Fire: The A to Z of how to consistently create fire by friction, no matter where you are, using only sticks.
Natural Shelters: Principles & proper techniques of effective shelter construction using only natural materials.
Water Wisdom: Learn how to locate water in the wilderness as well as how to purify water without any modern tools or materials.
Wild Eats: Learn life-saving foraging and hunting techniques that will help you to feed yourself off the land in the wilderness.
Survival Keystones: The expert “whys and hows” behind the essential skills you’re learning that are critical to understand for anyone looking to successfully navigate wilderness living experiences.
Class Sizes: The minimum number of people needed for a class to run is 10. Classes are limited to a maximum of 30 participants. (Compare to other survival schools – class sizes between 50-100 people!)
