Workshops, Courses & Private Events

Much of our time, energy, and resources are devoted to our Apprenticeship Program and supporting our Apprentices on their journey. In addition, we host public courses and workshops (listed below) on a variety of outdoor skills, traditional craft, and in-depth self-reliance. Scroll down to view the details on our Corporate Events & Private Programs.

2018 Field Courses & Front-Country Classes

Field Courses are held at our 300-acre Field Site near Ward, Colorado. Front-country Classes are held near our office in Lafayette, Colorado. Local driving directions are provided upon registration.

Fire & Ice: Winter Woodlore, Bushcraft & Survival

February 10-11 - Learn to build emergency wintertime shelters, make fire in any conditions, ‘make’ water, stay warm in winter, and signal for help.

Outdoor Skills 101

May 26 - Basic skills are being lost. Rekindle that know-how with our introductory outdoor course: knots, knives, fire-making, navigation, and more!

Primitive Trapping

July 14 - Sometimes called 'passive hunting', trapping is far more calorie-efficient than its hunting cousin. It's a skill that the student of longterm survival will absolutely want to learn and practice.

The ‘Wallet’ Survival Knife

July 15 - Learn the basic blacksmithing techniques of annealing, shaping, hardening, and tempering as you craft your own wicked-sharp 'wallet' knife that's guaranteed to be the sharpest knife you own.

Basic Bushcraft: An Introduction to the Art & Craft

July 21 - Learn to use and care for the four main tools of the bushcraft trade in this one-day introductory course. Knife, axe, saw, and crooked/hook knife will be covered in detail. Get your hands busy using these traditional tools of the woodsman.

Pack Basket Workshop

August 4 & 5 Learn splint-weaving techniques and weave yourself a beautiful pack basket inspired by the Adirondack Pack Baskets of the North Woods in this two-day completely hands-on workshop.

Private Groups & Corporate Events

Gone Feral takes the Management, Marketing & Sales Team from Boulder Beer Company out for a day of fun, learning to make fire.

Looking for a non-competitive, comaraderie-building group experience for your team? You've just found it.

Go Feral.

At Gone Feral, we laugh at the conventional, one-winner 'team-building' exercises in Corporate America. You won't find cheesy balloon races or go-carts here.

Survival: The Original Team-Building Exercise.

We take your team into the wilderness for a day of practical-learning. Make fire from sticks. Build shelters. Craft packs and gear from the land.

Here, it's all about working together, not apart. When one succeeds, we all succeed. Team-building happens.

Let us host you

We host groups at our 300-acre Field Site northwest of Ward, Colorado, amid the wildness of the upper Montane forests of the Rocky Mountains. With so much space so close to home, it’s easy to get away from it all yet not spend half the day in the car.

Packages are custom-designed to meet the needs and size of your group, whether 2 or 200.

The goals of Gone Feral’s Corporate Wilderness Programs are to:

  • Teach quality, core and advanced skills in a safe wilderness environment
  • Offer life-expanding, alternative activities for modern professionals
  • Show clients a great time, amid the beauty of the Colorado Rockies
