We highly recommend that everyone start with Earth Living One: Primitive Survival, or the Earth Living 5 Day. Though most of our courses have no prerequisites, the Earth Living series gives a solid foundation for all of our other courses and trips to build upon.
All survival and primitive skill courses have a minimum enrollment of four students and a maximum enrollment of fifteen unless otherwise stated in the course description. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold a space for you in a course. A course will be canceled if the minimum enrollment is not met two weeks prior to it’s start date. If the maximum enrollment is reached and you have not paid a deposit, you will forfeit your space in the course. Deposits are transferable if we are notified two weeks prior to a class. If we cancel a course, deposits are refundable.
If you are under the age of 18 and would like to attend our adult courses, please call the school at (207) 623-7298 to discuss whether they are appropriate for you
Each individual class and workshop will be different every time it is given, so it is worthwhile to come back to our school over and over again. Any student may come back as a volunteer to a class they have taken- please click on Volunteering for more information. We reserve the right to change course dates & prices at any time.
Workshops are one day, begin at 9 am, and run to 4 pm. Please arrive by 8:30am.
Weekend Classes are two days, start at 7pm on Friday evening, and run through Sunday at 12 noon. Please arrive by 6pm on Friday, so you have time to set up your tent and are ready to go by start time.
5 Day Classes will start at 9am on the first date listed and end at 4pm on the last day.
Trips & Camps have their own start and end times- please see Calendar page.
