Finding a top rated wilderness survival course to train in can be a challenge. More and more courses are being offered that teach outdoor skills by people with very little professional experience. In your search for a top rated survival course. You will learn more and be better served with a wilderness survival instructor who has been in the biz for at least 10 years. Longevity in the field of bush skills, primitive skills, and wilderness survival, tells us they know their craft.
Top Wilderness survival courses
I began Lifesong Wilderness Adventures 1994, which for some means I began teaching survival long before you were born. Think about the years of training I had before I started my business. Consider the years of training it takes and the integrity an instructor must have to be a professional in the field.
My courses include both primitive and modern technology. And to put our training to the test we offer a popular extreme adventure for men and women. That adventure ~THE EDGE
I offer weekend courses as well. Our Circle series of survival are 6-Day programs, and the wilderness immersion adventure for adults runs 28 days. Now that’s an adventure! You can train with me in California, Oregon, and Texas depending on the time of year.
Build a strong foundation first
First Circle Camp and LOST – TX are the standard wilderness survival course you will want to consider for your training.
Both of these top rated courses build a strong foundation in survival skills. First Circle and LOST- TX courses do not require any previous training to attend. I highly recommend either of these courses for the beginning camper or the experienced backpacker, hunter, or hiker.

Fighting Against Nature
I believe fighting nature in a survival situation is the worst attitude a person could have. However, If you believe like we do, that respecting and understanding nature gives you better odds to survive and flourish. Then you will be a perfect fit with Wienert’s teaching philosophy.

The best survival kit there is, is the one you carry on top of your shoulders. It’s the only survival go-bag that you can depend on in any survival situation regardless of where you are.
