Basic Survival Course

Thank you to Pioneer Survival Co. for making this video for us.


While other schools specialize in skills from the era of the 17th Century long-hunter or stone-age cave dweller, we specialize in teaching the survival skills of the Holy Bible. While we do not dress up in period clothing during our re-enactments, we instead seek to impart the knowledge of the skills and the spiritual principles that may come with them which will make us better stewards of the environment and overall, a more well rounded, spiritually connected people. The Modern Survival course is the foundation of all our other training courses here at Campcraft Outdoors Field School and will introduce participants to the survival concepts we teach. We will cover a variety of topics beginning with the Hidden Gospel of Preparedness and Survivor's Mindset; Wilderness Safety & Travel, to Fire Material Selection and Processing, Fire-Starting (Lots of them!), Water Purification, Knots, Shelters and lots more. There are a lot of hands-on skills in this class. We will also have some night exercises and enjoy some campfire meals, at which time we'll relax and enjoy the evening in the woods.
