Outdoor Survival

Survivor Camp

Do you think it would be fun to learn how to survive in the wild?! We'll rotate days in and out of the city hiking and learning hands-on survival skills. Campers will learn navigation skills, fire and shelter building, wildlife safety and much more. On the final day of camp, we'll test our skills with a Survival Challenge Day.

Please Note: this program involves travel in a 15-passenger van driven by trained and qualified drivers.

Snow Shelter

Family Friendly! Learn how to build a variety of snow shelters as part of your family survival skill set. We'll spend a Saturday out in Kananaskis building quinzees, trench shelters, snow caves, Scottish igloos, shovel igloos and Inuit igloos. You can head home at the end of the day, or sleep over in your creation. There is a pre-trip meeting that covers the details. Prerequisite: none. Includes: instructor, manual, use of snow shelter construction tools and cooking equipment.

Wilderness Survivor

Do you think it would be fun to learn how to survive in the wild? For the first few days we’ll explore the Kananaskis area with our experienced instructors and learn hands-on skills. We’ll learn how to safely build fires and shelters, be bear aware and much more. The last 2 days are spent on a group overnight trip to try out your newly-acquired skills and sleep in a shelter that you built yourself.

Required: check equipment list and additional information in the online event details.
Prerequisite: attend pre-trip meeting with a parent to discuss required items and cover meal planning (food is not included). The pre-trip meeting will be held the Tuesday of your camp at 2:45pm.
