WILDERNESS SURVIVAL INSTRUCTION FOR YOUTH AND ADULTS IN DC/MD/VA

Whether you are looking to make car camping more enjoyable with a warm fire, or you are getting ready to hike the AT, learning basic outdoor skills is the key to staying found, safe, and comfortable in the wilderness.  Our Introduction to Wilderness Skills gives you the tools to plan your next trip into the outdoors with confidence.

The Introduction to Wilderness Skills teaches the basics of outdoor survival. This is not an extensive “Man Vs. Nature” experience, but rather a primer in skills that will keep the average car camper or trail hiker safe and comfortable for an extended period of time.

For those outdoor enthusiasts interested in a more intensive, primitive skills program, we offer the Primitive Skills Overnight. This program will focus on fire, water and shelter using a minimum of equipment and the natural resources we find around us.

Primitive Skills Overnight

The Introduction to Wilderness Skills gives participants the skills to venture out into the woods overnight, and find their way back to their home or vehicle the next day. This program is hands-on, experiential, and is designed to give a crash course in the fundamental necessities of outdoor survival. Participants should have a reasonable level of fitness (there is some hiking involved) and should be 10 years-old or older.
