Background of the Program:

The Campcraft Outdoors Instructor Certification Program, with a proven ten-year track record, has consistently produced some of the top wilderness survival and bushcraft instructors in the outdoor industry today. Other schools and organizations have adopted this program in the “survival space” of the outdoor industry, and the program has received endorsements from the National Home School Association, Men’s Journal, and National Bible College Association. As a faith-based educational program, we specialize in teaching the Biblical why and how of the outdoor skills we share.


Program Purpose:

The initial Certification Program covers the five primary areas of wilderness skills and leadership: Wilderness Survival, Bushcraft and Wilderness First Aid, Urban Survival and Preparedness, Winter Survival Skills, and Teaching and Business Management. Upon leaving this program, graduates will be well-equipped to offer Basic Modern Survival skills and Basic Wilderness First Aid classes to churches, groups, corporations, and individuals. The qualifications included in this program include:
