    Final Notes

    This week-long survival course will not only introduce you to important skills and awesome new people, but it’s also going to be fun! We want to make surviving in the wilderness more that about “surviving” …we want it to be enjoyable as you learn to thrive!

    This is not a competition, rather an adventure to help you grow and learn while working together with the group. We want to support you, teach you, and learn from you. 

    Meals will be provided.

    Also, please note that we expect everyone as individuals to know your own limits and to not push yourself too hard. This is a real wilderness setting where professional medical help is up to an hour away, and that includes a horseback ride. During this survival course we will be approximately a 3.5 hour ride and a 2.5 hour drive from the nearest hospital (see directions). If anything serious happens we will call for helicopter support. With that in mind, we want to have fun but also ask you take this seriously: don’t let ego get in the way of taking a step back.

    Thank you for your interest! We look forward to working alongside you soon!
