Wilderness Survival Kit Workshop

Price $65.00

2nd Saturday of most months in 2021
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!
