24-hour/3-season Survival Overnight
New in 2019, we’re offering an advanced course in survival.
Put your skills to the test, overnight, at our 9500′-elevation field site. You. Limited gear. The elements.
This course focuses on providing participants a safe learning environment to put previously-learned skills to the test. You’ll come out to our site, review basic survival skills/methods and then be released to survive for 24 hours.
Most of our courses are “no experience required”. But for this course we STRONGLY recommend that you have ample outdoor/survival experience with us or another respectable outdoor school.
The conditions we may encounter in late-May include snow, hail, rain, 90-degree temps with fire bans – and anything in between. When registering for this course, you’re agreeing to meet conditions where they are: unpredictable, unreliable, and always changing.
All skills reviewed/practiced on this course are specific to the upper Montane of the Rockies and include:
- Shelter principles and construction
- Bushcraft Tool safety & use – knife, axe, saw
- Survival priorities, physiology, and mentality
- Water finding & disinfection
- Fire skills, including emergency methods, structures, and tending
- Navigating & Signaling for help
The point of this course is to give participants a ‘challenge-yourself’ scenario in order to practice skills in an environment in which we’re onhand to support and help, as well as provide backup/emergency assistance if needed. This is NOT a course where you’ll ever be denied anything (food, water, etc.). In fact, we require you to bring a full detail of modern camping equipment to rely on as backup. You’ll arrive onsite, receive a basic tour, pitch camp, review basic survival necessities – and then be released to survive the night at 9500′ in the Colorado Rockies.Register For This Course
