July 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - July 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm

| $210.00

Modern gear used wisely can turn a potential tragedy in to an extra day in the woods with stories to share. Don’t be “that guy”.

Learn to use and improvise gear in such a way as to provide quick and effective shelter, water, fire, and food.

      Hi Chris,

      I have corrected the issue that was preventing you from signing up for this course. We look forward to seeing you!

    What does the $210 admission fee cover? Is there any material provided? What should I pack or expect to bring?

    • Laura Mangan says:

      Good Morning Hillary, You should plan to bring the gear you would expect to bring on a backpacking trip. If you are unsure, please view the link here : http://www.primitiveskills.com/resources/#whattobring

      The tuition cost covers your classes for the weekend, and any materials that those classes may require. You also have access to the dorms for the first night that you are here (the second night you will be sleeping in the field, with the class)

      If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Be Well- Lulu

      The $210.00 covers instructor fees and equipment use as well as facilities upkeep. You will begin in the center of Campus on Friday night in our Winter Classroom for an introduction and debrief. After an overnight in one of our camp sites you will head out into the wildlife refuge and to our advanced camp for hands on training from Saturday Morning until Sunday.
