Intro to Survival Skills
Survival Training Course
Introduction to Survival Skills is a fun and informative 8-hour course that covers fires, signaling, shelters, survival kits, and gear. The day starts off with a campfire lecture on survival skills and equipment, followed by practical application of those skills in the woods of our 160 acre Tekamah training facility. If you are interested in learning the basics of survival, but are apprehensive about spending the night in the woods, this course is for you. This is also a great course for those planning on taking our overnight survival classes.
