THE EDGE extreme vacationCalifornia

It is with purpose we do not give out specific details about camp in order to enhance your extreme survival vacation.  It is our goal to help you develop self-confidence, self-reliance, and self-empowerment while facing the unknown.  Mark Wienert supplies the knowledge and tools to give you THE EDGE.

Even though you will be on your own and away from our main camp for your overnight adventure, we monitor participants to insure a great experience.  Plenty of delicious mountain water is available at all times during all aspects of camp.

Dear LWA,

“I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks & gratitude.  As you know THE EDGE was a 50th birthday present from my family.  Singularly, this was the best gift I ever received.  Your camp was outstanding and exceeded my expectations.  Your curriculum and intensive training got me well prepared for my solo overnight adventure.  I would recommend this camp to anyone young & old alike, male or female.”     

All the best. ~  Dr. Dean G. Professor Columbia University


Dear Mark,

“I am awfully glad I had the opportunity to spend that time with you. It has helped me connect in a more profound way to nature around me. I look at it differently and slow down so that I can be more present to it – for some reason I am now better able to blot out much of the extraneous stimuli of modern life. Also, and equally important, I have an entirely more practical and nuanced understanding of survival in the wild – no longer driven to conquer it, far less afraid of it, and far more confident in my ability to make the appropriate decisions. Far more in awe of nature too! ” 

   Cheers! ~ Hugh M.  Realtor 

Darren and Rick share their EDGE experience and a testimonial.

Hey Mark,I hope this email finds you well.  I wanted to thank you again for an amazing experience in the edge camp. Rick and I had a great time learning about the wild and how to survive with nothing! ~Darren D.
