Survival Basics


Keep your face to the sunshine and you never see the shadow.

Survival Basics I

The Survival Basics I class is for any person who may find him/herself in a wilderness survival situation.  Hikers, backpackers, climbers, hunters, off-roaders, pilots, tactical operators and SAR personnel all will benefit from this course. 


Survival Basics I is oriented to both inexperienced or moderately experienced persons and is designed to help you become more competent and self-reliant in the outdoors.  If you intend to spend time in the backcountry having some basic survival know-how is a good idea.  You don’t necessarily need to become the ultimate survivalist; however, you do need some basic knowledge in this area.  Each year, all over North America, experienced campers and backpackers make bad decisions that result in their deaths.  Avoid becoming a statistic by becoming “survival-aware.”
