So you’ve taken Primitive Survival Skills, learned and practiced the Survival Sacred Order and loved it. Haven’t had enough? Wanting to take it to the next level? Then this is the camp for you!
In this series of camps, we will cover extended skills, which go beyond mere survival to living comfortably with nature and the Earth. These are advanced courses dealing with intense work/study, covering seasonal topics and projects.
These skills would also be useful if you just wanted to live more closely to the earth on a day-to-day basis, appreciating the earth and all the bountiful gifts it has to offer. One just has to learn to "see" and then have the knowledge to use, in a caretaking manner, what nature provides for us all.
Topics to be covered:
Aidless Navigation - lost prevention skills
Debris hut additions
Herbal First Aid
Hand drill - fire starting method
More Traps and Snares
Cooking and eating utensils
Deer Hide Tanning
Pine Needle Baskets
Nature awareness activities
Harvesting red clay and making pots
How to make moccasins
What to bring?
A knife is MANDATORY, and a sharp fixed blade (non-folding) knife is best. You can purchase a knife at camp for $25.
Dinner and breakfast will be provided. Bring your own lunches.
Eating utensils, plate, bowl, cup (please do not bring any disposables)
Bandana for your reuseable napkin
Sleeping bag + blankets
Notebook and pencils
Vegetarian Fare Available like at all our camps, just let us know.
We have a swimming pond and outdoor showers, so bring provisions to enjoy. Also a camp chair and flash light are nice to have but not a necessity.
