YOUTH SURVIVAL COURSE – WILDERNESS & SURVIVAL SKILLS

June 20 @ 8:00 am - June 21 @ 4:00 pm

$100.00

In this Adventure-Based Skills Day Camp, your child will learn skills that promote independence, critical thinking and most of all, skills to stay alive in bad situations!

Our annual 2 day youth course is designed to teach generations lost skills that could potentially save their life and others. We follow the rule of 3 Basic Survival Skills and go ABOVE the normal experience of most kids camps. As with each year we refresh on old skills and incorporate new ones to keep students on the toes.

This year we will bring in water survival skills based on military lifesaving techniques that could be the difference if caught in a dangerous amphibious situation. Course material is taught by experienced and professional survival instructors with over 20 yrs survival and emergency preparedness experience. A female certified lifeguard will also be present during all water skills training to assist.
