The Maine Primitive Skills School is a wilderness survival school located on 23 wooded acres in Augusta, Maine. Our goal is to reconnect people to ancient technologies and back to themselves. We teach primitive skills, survival skills, wilderness survival, modern survival, bushcraft, native awareness, wildlife tracking, earth living, shelter building, water collection & disinfection, friction fire making, bow making, flintknapping, wild edibles, hide tanning, scout skills, primitive hunting, earth philosophy, drum making, survival trapping, and more.
We are a group of people dedicated to reconnecting ourselves and others to our ancestral roots through skills that have been practiced for two million years. Primitive skills connect us to what is meaningful and real and dispel the illusions created by modern society. Through our odyssey we have become a teaching community that continues to grow and celebrate new members each time we gather for a class. Wilderness Survival and Earth skills may be what we teach, but they really teach us how to be a family once again.
We invite you to become part of our tribe by walking through our door. Be warned: these primitive skills will change you. You will not see the world in the same way nor will you be able to return to the place from whence you came. We welcome you to our Survival School.
