Accommodations: A large 21 person military tent with winter liner is provided for a community tent during class hours and may be used for sleeping at night. Tent is complete with 2 wood burning stoves and a cot for each student. A smaller 5-10 person military tent with winter liner and is also available for private sleeping accommodations (first come/first served).
Food and Water: Water will be provided but you will need to provide your own food of your choice. We recommend quick field expedient meals such as our Camp Ready Meals or MRE’s. They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process. Our camp ready meals are the healthiest option on the market! You can also purchase food locally once you get here. Walmart and several local eateries are a close drive away.
Length: 2 days/1 nights
Minimum Recommended Equipment: Bring appropriate outdoor clothing, a good sleeping bag and an all season tent if you do not wish to stay in our military tent. Sunscreen and UV protective sunglasses.
Shelter: You may sleep in a tent you bring, in your vehicle, in a primitive shelter or share one of our military tents which have wood burning stoves inside.
We will not provide you with any gear, so please come prepared. Fixed blade knife, folding saw, overnight camping gear, winter sleeping bag and a small backpack. Check Recommended Items List for more details!
Clothing Required: Warm outdoor clothing, warm gloves and hat, outdoor boots and wool socks. Cotton clothing is highly discouraged! Wool will keep you warm even when wet. Layers are important in Colorado. You will want a water whicking base layer, an insulating mid layer, and a waterproof breathable outer shell.
