The Sacred Four of Survival: shelter, water, fire, and food. These are the necessities we must have to provide for our most basic survival needs.
Survival skills training instructs you in basic survival skills that work and are simple to apply in survival situations. Beginning with the science of shelter to utilizing the benefits of wild plants.
Number one in the sacred order of survival is shelter. Our body is our first concern in a survival situation, knowing how to protect and shelter it from the elements is crucial. We cover shelter in the most basic sense and add advanced techniques for more extreme conditions.
Without good fresh water to drink, our body’s can have a difficult time of it. Water is number two in the sacred order of survival, you will learn how to find, filter, and purify water
The ability to make fire is the third order of survival. The art of fire making is critical and a life saving technique that must be mastered for wilderness living and survival.
The fourth order of survival, knowing how, what, and where to harvest food in the wild. Even more important is learning what wild plants, animals, birds, reptiles, and insects can be healthy fare for our wilderness repast. We do not trap or snare live animals at camp, but you will learn the techniques, and learn to prepare and cook wild foods.
Tools are an important part of our survival kit. From sticks to darts, clubs to rock, snares and deadfalls, learning how to create and use these tools will be a big part of camp.
