Intro to Survival Skills 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.
