Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to live with the Native Californians? Come learn the ancient skill of survival – shelter, water, fire, food. No matter what your background, from the novice camper to the seasoned backpacker, there is something for you in this class.
Set among the beautiful redwoods of Santa Cruz and Marin, the 1-Day Wilderness Skills clinic is a great way to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the work week and get back to nature! Our trained instructors – expert survivalists and naturalists – are excited to share these sacred skills with you. Learning these timeless traditions, such as native shelter building and fire-by-friction, helps to build self-esteem and awareness from knowing YOU CAN SURVIVE!
This class is 100% hands-on and appropriate for all ages, but the pace is geared towards teens and adults (children 12 & under must be accompanied by an adult). Everything you learn, you will do! Be prepared for your next wilderness adventure by practicing these timeless skills. You WILL build a shelter, you WILL make fire, you WILL learn about edible plants, see and learn about native style traps, and experience several other indigenous skills.
This class is about getting back to the earth, learning how our ancestors lived in harmony with our planet, and experiencing nature to its fullest. There is something here for everybody – come with an open mind and be ready to learn!
This course is appropriate for all ages, however it is fast-paced and geared towards teens/adults. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult at a 1:1 ratio of child to adult (i.e. 1 adult cannot bring a group of children to a class). Childcare is not available at this course – it is the responsibility of parents to monitor their children so that our instructors can focus on teaching to the group. Thank you for complying!
