Texas Standard & Advanced Standard



Ask yourself this question. Could you survive outdoors in a natural disaster for one week without matches, a gun, a knife, food, and the skills needed to survive?  Do you really want to rely on someone else to make life and death decisions for you and your family’s survival when things get tough?  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.  You learn what is available in the outdoors, how to use it, prepare it, to supply the most basic of survival needs.

Consider wild plants.  Plants can be edible, medicinal, or utilitarian; like a common flower that will slow or stop bleeding; a root to numb a toothache; bark that tastes like root beer; and, plant fiber so strong you can make a bowstring.  You will never view a flower, leaf, stalk, bush, stick, or a tree the same way again.

Modern technology is great and makes our life more comfortable, but if our cell phone dies, we lose it, forget it, or a hundred other scenarios, “… being able to make a fire, a survival shelter,
and a trap for food, just seems like good skills to acquire…..”  ~
Joshua P.

We hope you never have to apply these skills in a true survival situation, but would you like to know personally, how empowering these skills are?  L.O.S.T. can show you during the four (4) day Texas Standard Survival Training; or, take both the Texas Standard and Texas Advanced Standard for seven (7) days of continuous, empowerment, reward, and challenge.
