Extreme Wilderness Survival Training THE EDGEDear 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.


“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.
