You will learn everything you need to know about staying warm and dry in the wilderness.  We are all about being comfortable in the woods and our we will help you build multiple primitive survival shelters. This class will cover the some of the top survival shelters and the students will get to participate in building each one.


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.



Food and Water: Clean water will be provided but you will need to provide your own food of your choice. We recommend quick field expedient meals such as Wise Food, Survival Cave Food or MRE’s. They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process. You can ship these meals to the course location if you don’t want to carry them. We will store them until you arrive.

Minimum Recommended Equipment:  Fixed Blade Knife, folding saw, outdoor clothing, boots, small backpack, paracord, water bottle and food.


We will not provide you with any gear, so please come prepared. You don’t need much equipment for our courses, though good equipment does speed the learning process up greatly!  You don’t have to buy our  gear to attend the course, but you need survival gear of equivalent quality.
