This 2 Day Modern Survival class is designed for the hiker, hunter, backpacker, or other adventure seeker who feel they may have a sufficient amount of survival gear and equipment and want to improve their survival skills. The course will teach students to prioritize their survival gear and utilize it effectively and efficiently in survival situations. This class focuses heavily on practical skills with an overnight survival scenario in a controlled environment, followed by a debrief on the third day.

This class is appropriate for all skill levels and even the most seasoned outdoorsman will likely learn some new tips and tricks. Completion of this class gives you a huge confidence boost and a full understanding of kit mentality.


Students will learn wilderness risk assessment and management, how to avoid potentially dangerous situations, proper gear selection and how it relates to the priorities of survival. Next we’ll teach some practical knots and expedient survival shelters that are useful in the outdoors. We’ll discuss the selection and maintenance of our most commonly used tools and gear.

This course also covers the methods of heat loss using a light weight kit to maintain our core body temperature. Splitting and processing firewood for tinder, kindling, and fuel and practicing multiple methods of modern fire starting with a focus on ferrocerium rods are some of the tasks we’ll be covering. We’ll also be making modern fire starters from readily available materials found in your home that will greatly increase your fire starting abilities.

Students will learn about waterborne pathogens and various modern purifiers. We will discuss some common misconceptions about water filtration and how to safely purify water with various types of modern gear.

Additionally, we will be covering the psychology of survival and the importance of maintaining a positive mental attitude to improve morale and cultivate a resilient mindset in a survival situation.

At the end of day two, students will undertake a practical field scenario, which will allow them to demonstrate their competency and ability to understand and respond to adverse situations. The students will then individually demonstrate their ability to build a survival shelter, process wood into a survival fire, light a fire with fire starters made earlier in the course then obtain and perform other standard survival tasks. We believe that exposure and practical use of your modern tools is the best way to determine which components work best for you.
