3 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.

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 three” priorities.

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

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

Day 1 we will cover survival basics and tool craft such as rule of threes and psychology of survival and then move on into making tools that you may use in a survival situation.

​Day 2 we will cover fire. 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.

​Day 3 we will 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.

A large 20 person military tent with winter liner is provided for a community tent during class hours and may be used for sleeping at night.

The tent is complete with 2 wood burning stoves and a cot for each student.

A portable restroom is also available on site.

Food can be stored in your vehicles or we have a large steel box that will hold enough food for all attendees.

You may sleep in a tent you bring, in your vehicle, in a primitive shelter or share one of our military tents which have wood burning stoves inside.

If you do not wish to camp with us, the town of Cripple Creek is a short 15 minute drive from our location and Woodland Park is 30 minutes away.

You will be responsible for making your own reservations with nearby hotels.

We do have a central community campfire location with a few designated camp sites but mostly offer dispersed camping.  You will be able to drive your car within 100 feet of main camp and will not have to hike your gear in for long distances.

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.

​Bring your gear with you. We do not provide you with gear unless you purchase it from us ahead of time.

Bring appropriate outdoor clothing, a good sleeping bag and an all season tent if you do not wish to stay in our military tent.

  • Fixed blade knife (Preferably a bushcraft style knife without a serrated edge)
