Campfire imageOur Survival Series of programs are designed to give scouts ongoing training in wilderness survival skills.  These classes build upon each other creating a framework that will allow students to handle any situation that might arise.  We emphasize teamwork, creative problem solving and self reliance.  As they progress through the classes, they will learn how to build different types of shelters, start fires under any conditions, find water and food, observe nature in detail and feel comfortable in the woods.  The most important lesson we try to convey is that even in this modern world we are still interconnected and dependent on nature in many ways. 

Program cost is $5 per student.  Programs can be adapted to different age levels.  Our 2017 Scout Programs Brochure (.pdf) for more information about our programs.
