Wilderness Survival Course
Immersing individuals into how to live off the land. Only 12 people will be selected. The training is rigorous because it’s all hands on. In the Wilderness Survival course, we teach outdoors so individuals can learn from instructors in a live environment. Instructors are experts in their field and all the instructors have prior military or active duty.
We expect individuals to sleep outside in the shelters they make, kill animals that are caught in the traps they set, and capture an instructor with camouflage techniques. Individuals will only get four hours of sleep each day to drain their energy so they can understand how their body works.
Rest time is when you die… you can sleep all the time you want. Individuals will not be allowed to bring items to assist them in this class as mother nature provides everything.
