At Texas camp, the type of knowledge, training, and certainty of action gives you the edge during any crisis. L.O.S.T-Texas survival training is much more than learning how to respond in a crisis. The skills and techniques you develop during this course are also doorways to a greater and richer experience in the world of nature.

Dear Mark, I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful week, it was very enlightening, humbling and so interesting to get a small glimpse into your wealth of knowledge.  I really walked away with more than I thought I would and it has really put a new perspective on things. I look forward to my next adventure with Lifesong!    ~Chris W.
