Do or Die. There is no try!

You never really know what you’re capable of until you only have 2 choices: To do or to fail. That’s why, in this ultimate survival field course, you will leave your gear in the car and venture out into nature with a knife and an empty water bottle. Adaptability and improvisation is key in this course as you will learn to utilize your surroundings and make them work to your advantage. Learn to navigate extreme terrain, shelter-making, first aid, trap-making, fire-making, water purification, cordage, plant identification, navigation, and so much more.

I went with a group of friends who all wanted to kick our own butts a little bit. The instruction was exceptional and I felt safe but challenged all 3 days. I’ve never been so excited to eat leaves ever.
