2 Day Survival Basics

The survival basics class is designed for students that don’t have the time to take off for our 5 day standard, but still want to learn the minimum survival skills for being lost in the woods.

This is a 2 day survival basics course for beginners.

The survival basics class is designed for students that don’t have the time to take off for our 5 day standard, but still want to learn the minimum survival skills for being lost in the woods.

We take the most important elements out of the 5 Day Outdoor Survival Skills class and condense the class to the core priorities.

Your first priorities in a “lost in the woods” scenario, are always shelter and fire.

The survival basics class will cover these two topics in depth, so you can be prepared for the worst.

We will teach several fire methods in the survival basics class.

You will learn friction fire, how to make an all night fire, and a below the ground fire.

Fire is of the utmost importance in a survival situation. It provides you a way to filter or boil water, cook food, all while keeping you warm, and preventing hypothermia.

We will also take you through the steps of building primitive shelters.

We will show you how to build a shelter, that will keep you warm and dry.

You will learn proper placement of the framework, proper thickness and height of debris insulation, and proper waterproofing techniques.

We will not provide you with any gear, so please come prepared.

Minimum Gear Needed:

  • Overnight camping gear to include shelter and sleeping bag.
  • Fixed Blade Full Tang Knife (WITHOUT a serrated edge)
  • Folding Saw
  • 100′ Paracord
  • Food (Plenty of time will be given to prepare meals on site)
  • Flashlight or Headlamp
  • Canteen
  • Outdoor clothing, boots, and wet weather gear
  • Insect Repellent

Check Recommended Items List for more details!

Water will be provided but you will need to provide your own food of your choice.

We recommend quick field expedient meals such as freeze dried meals or MRE’s.

They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process.

You can also purchase food locally once you get here. Grocery Stores and several local eateries are within a reasonable driving distance.

The instructor for this course will be Jason Marsteiner.
