As parents, we have wanted for a while to develop a kid’s program to lay the foundation of safety, learning, and skill for future adventures. The Survival University has teamed up with local teachers, youth leaders, search and rescue teams, and childhood development experts to put together a program that is not only safe and fun, but truly plants the love for outdoors and adventure in the hearts of younger children. The entire TSU KIDS program is based around skills taught through games and stories that your little adventurers are sure to enjoy, remember, and, more importantly, apply when you go out on your own adventures. The curriculum is designed around building confidence and skill should you ever be separated from your little people, but it is delivered in such a way as to let fun trump fear. The emphasis is on getting more out of their time outdoors and enjoying every hike, fishing trip, camp out or even just a stroll through the park. All through history children were using skills we now expect only from the highest trained experts, not because they were in an emergency situation, but simply because they wanted pancakes for breakfast or to play in the woods. It is our most sincere desire to help you return your little adventurer to the skill level of their ancestors and help them take steps towards becoming their own heroes.
As outdoor educators we are subject to nature around us. Because of this, every class will have extra adventures and learning moments that pop up. Knowing this we design each class with a core of things we wish to bring to our students and have a host of back ups to deal with any opportunities that may arise. A small sampling of what our young adventurers should expect to learn about is staying found, basic kids survival skills, fire safety, what to do around animals to stay safe and have a great time, signaling, games to make hiking fun, camp set up, camping games, folklore, a host of starter woodcraft skills to peak ones interest in the outdoors, and of course how to keep the smoke from the fire out of your eyes and the bugs off of your body.
