The 5 Day Outdoor Survival Skills Training covers the basics or survival and outdoor skills with shelter, water, food and various other basic and advanced skills.

In this course we will focus on both primitive and modern survival techniques with an emphasis on a few basic tools that you should have in your backpack when venturing out into the wilderness.

This course will prepare you for situations that people tend to find themselves in when things go wrong in the wilderness.

Outside of a survival situation, this class will simply allow you to feel more comfortable in the woods.​

The Outdoor Survival Skills Training course is all hands on field training, with minimal lectures and no power point presentations!

Prepare to get your hands dirty!  This class is based on the well known and utilized survival standard Rule of Threes.

Each day we will cover a different topic with the first day teaching you many basic survival techniques that you will continue to use throughout the week.  We will go over basics of survival, shelter, fire, water, food, primitive tools, survival kit preparation and more!

With these basics outdoor skills, you will feel more comfortable every time you throw on that pack and head out onto a trail.

While the outdoor survival skills training is in-depth families are welcome and encouraged to attend  the course for learning outdoor skills in a family friendly environment.

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.

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.
