The Essentials 101 wilderness survival course is a great choice for those that desire some dandy hands-on teachings and a good tad of learning ... in only a short time. Teachings about positive mental attitude, fire building, shelter building, wilderness first aid, and water procurement/disinfection. All very essential skills of wilderness survival. Expect to be kept busy, even into the evening hours. Like we said, the training is hands-on. And, expect to learn more than you thought possible in only a short time - that of a weekend. Personal camping / backpacking gear will be allowed, as well as food from home. Students will overnight in personal tents (or hammocks), and will cook over a camp fire, using their chosen food selections for their evening meal and breakfast. Bottled water will be provided for the duration of the course.
