Class - 2 Day Survival Shelters

Class - 2 Day Survival Shelters


Survival Shelters


Difficulty Rating: Level Beginner

Our survival shelters classes are very comprehensive and sometimes cover more on specific subjects than our longer term survival courses. If you want to learn everything you need to know about staying warm and dry in the wilderness, then this is the course for you.  It is a common misconception that shelters can be erected quickly without any experience.  We will teach you the practical time that it takes to build a shelter as well as ways that will make shelter building less time consuming.   We are all about being comfortable in the woods.  We will demonstrate how to build completely primitive survival shelters as well as how to throw up quick emergency shelters with minimal materials. This class will cover the some of the top survival shelters and the students will get to participate in building each one. As well as building the shelters, each student will get to tour a multitude of different survival shelters on the property and sleep in some if they choose. Each shelter has different uses in different climates and we will discuss the finer points of being comfortable in your shelter and what modifications should be made for various environments. All primitive shelters are far superior to commercial products if built correctly and this class will show you how to construct shelters quickly and comfortably!
