Wilderness Survival Kit Workshop

Price $65.00

Course instruction 1:00pm - 4:00pm

No one ever intends to get lost in the woods.  It's important to prepare yourself and your family before going hiking or backpacking so that Search and Rescue can find you if you do happen to get lost.  It typically takes Search and Rescue about 72 hours to locate someone once they've been reported lost.  We can help you prepare to survive during those 72 hours and increase your chances of being found.  Our Basic Wilderness Survival Kit Mentality Workshop teaches you how to make the best use of every item in our survival kit.  After the class, the kit (valued at $50.00) is yours to keep!  Preparing yourself to survive while waiting for help is certainly worth the investment!

Price $55.00

1:00pm - 4:00pm

In this, 2-hour workshop the instructor will demonstrate creating flash tender, making a fire-starting bundle, and the proper technique to use your bow drill.  Participants will then make their own fire bundle and bow drill and the instructor will work with participants to help them create an ember and fire.  At the end of the class take home your bow drill as an example and to practice with later.  Creating fire from a bow drill the first time is one of the most satisfying feelings.   It will be a cherished memory.
