Survival School Texas
The first day at camp
This is always an exciting time for us. This is the day we put names to faces and meet the folks we will be teaching for the week. Most of us have never met before so our job as staff is to introduce ourselves to you and help you get your gear to your camping spot. We are also happy to provide any help you may need in setting up your tent or other needs.
Parking is close to your campsite which makes it easy to get your gear there and sorted. Our staff is available to help you set up and answer questions. So go ahead and ask for help.
After you set up and ready for your first overnight. Head up to the pavilion to check in. The pavilion is where we meet for all activities. Please bring any paper work and camp forms with you. Getting you checked in helps us account for all students.
Survival School Texas is primitive outdoor camping experience. We all sleep in tents for the most part. And I recommend that you do too. To get the full outdoor experience. You are welcome to sleep in your vehicle if you're more comfortable.
The weather this time of year includes rain, clouds, sunshine, and beautiful sunsets. We have great views of the night sky and constellations weather permitting.
Camp is about about a 40 minute drive time from Austin-Bergstrom airport with Bastrop the closest nearby town.
Camp is home to a rich variety of wildlife including Whitetail deer, feral pig, and coyote. A variety of birds also make this area home including red birds, the illusive road runner, and the magnificent Caracara Mexican eagle. And during the evenings you may hear the many calls of the Barred owl.
Survival School Texas
I began teaching survival skills in Texas due to the high demand for our services. Folks began to realize that reliance on modern technology can leave them vulnerable. In the event of a natural disaster or man made disasters they began looking for knowledge and skills as options. Just in case.
And I have been providing these skills to better prepare you. The basic's you need to get by during an emergencies. Survival School Texas is also about nature and how we can utilize her for our needs.
