Students will demonstrate proficiency in the big 4 (shelter water fire food) by building, carving, and practicing the techniques instructors teach and facilitate during class.

They will learn to track animals, build fire with sticks, make arrowheads and much more. We encourage growth through introspection and sensory awareness. Learning to connect with your landscape and not only feel a part of it but one with it is a skill that students learn to master in our courses.
