An excellent basic survival course is designed for backpackers and hikers. We take you for a 6 day trek into the Golden Trout Wilderness, our back country classroom. You'll learn techniques of traveling light, navigation by natural means, map and compass, fire making without matches, mountain medicine, survival psychology, emergency shelter building, locating water, identifying edible plants, and catching fish with your bare hands. Learn Indian methods of using the natural environment to keep warm and comfortable while traveling through pristine basins, and enjoying spectacular scenery.
To finish the course you will, on a voluntary basis, hike to a solo campsite, which you will select, spend a night in isolation, and return to a designated rendezvous point the next day, navigating by shadow, stars and other primitive means. You'll come away from your survival seminar with the confidence and knowledge to protect yourself in any survival situation. Come join us and gain the experience, skills and confidence to feel comfortable, relaxed, and get the most out of the wilderness back country.
- Experience Level: hiking experience required, backpacking experience recommend, but not required along with good physical condition required.
