WOMEN’S WILDERNESS SKILLS/SURVIVAL WEEKEND
This 2 day/1 night weekend event is for women only. Women who hike, camp, hunt, fish, recreate outdoors in any form, or who simply desire experience in the outdoors. All are welcome. This course is based upon our Wilderness Self Reliance-Level 1 course. The purpose of this class is to provide exposure to wilderness skills and methods used to stay alive in the face of adversity while also enjoying a peaceful experience in the woods and away from the stress of daily life. This course of instruction will provide realistic and factual information and is not “survival” as seen on TV.
Instructors for this course are former high level law enforcement and military personnel who are currently medical, wilderness skills, search and rescue, corporate leadership, primitive skills and self reliance educators.
We will cover such topics as fire making, core temperature control, modern and primitive shelter options, gear/kit/clothing, search and rescue response methods, self rescue, rescue signaling, primitive and modern land navigation, dietary/nutrition realities while afield, water procurement and treatment, priorities during wilderness survival/emergencies, wilderness first aid/Injury and trauma management, and much more. We will stay in a woodland environment for the class duration, day and night.
Please bring what you would normally carry afield or to camp, water bottle, knife, food and quality footwear. Expect moderate hikes and physical activity. We want you to bring your choice of gear. We will operate from our packs. We will evaluate accordingly and adjust as needed.
Cost is $50 for the full weekend. Group discounts available. Please contact us directly to register.
