The Basic Survival course is the foundation of all our other training courses and will introduce participants to The 5 Stones of Survival and 5x5 Survival Concepts we teach here at Campcraft Outdoors Field School which are based upon 1 Samuel 17. We will cover a variety of topics beginning with Safety to Tree Identification, Fire Material Selection and Processing, Fire Starting (Lots of them!), Basic Water Purification, and Knots and Shelters. There are a lot of hands-on skills in this class. We'll may have some night exercises in late fall and winter months that will end shortly after night-fall, at which time we'll relax around camp and enjoy the evening in the woods. This is a great class to bring your family to so you can all learn about different types of emergency kits and skills- plus it will make for better overall family camping experiences down the road!
