What are Guided Transformational Techniques?
Because we all learn differently, using these three teaching techniques is how humans learn.
First, we begin with stories. Stories connect us to our imagination, the creative part of ourselves. Through story, we can imagine a thing and how it fits within the landscape of our own life experience.
Secondly, watching and observing in real-time is how humans have always learned. We learn by watching how all the parts and pieces fit together.
Third, hands-on! You use your mind and body to create in the now.
These Guided Transformational Techniques help you gain a deeper awareness and enjoyment of the natural world. And to dramatically increase your wilderness survival skills.
Is Survival Training hard?
Survival training can be challenging, but nothing worth doing is easy. However, there is no reason for nervousness. Our training is designed to help you succeed. We deliver our lessons in a relaxed, supportive, and professional manner.
Do women attend your survival skills training?
Yes, our camps are open to people of all genders. Anyone can benefit from taking our survival courses.
Read what our students say...
Do older adults attend your camps?
Yes, adults in their 40's, 50's, and 60s have attended our training.
Do I have to be in physical shape to attend?
The better shape you are in the more comfortable you'll be. If you can walk a mile over uneven ground with comfort, you are fit enough to attend our Camp.
Are you a military-style boot camp?
We are not a military-style boot camp. The amount of energy you put into the camp is entirely up to you. You can work as hard or at the level of physical activity you're most comfortable with.
Can I Retake a Camp?
Yes! Retaking a previously attended camp gives you more days and nights to train, practice, and experience your ever-deepening connection with nature.
We want you to have every opportunity to practice and acquire solid skills and field experience.
Retaking a camp gives you the opportunity to evolve your skills while becoming more physically fit. You will build endurance, and gain strength while adding more dirt time to focus on your favorite skills.
Is there a discount available for retaking a camp?
Yes. For qualified returning students, retaking a previously attended camp earns a discount.
Thinking about becoming a qualified survival skills instructor?
There’s no better opportunity for training to be a qualified survival skills instructor than retaking courses.
We train for safety
Your safety is our number one priority. In a real survival scenario, the ability to move safely and stay safe increases your chances of survival.
Safety is an important skill to practice during outdoor recreation activities. Whether you're out for a day hike or a weekend backpacking trip, we train for wilderness safety the same way.
