Wilderness Survivor

Do you think it would be fun to learn how to survive in the wild? Spend 5 days with our experienced instructors and learn hands-on in the Kananaskis area. 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 3:30 pm (Spring Wilderness Survivor is on June 9th). Includes: instructor, all group gear, transportation, permit.
