What to bring:

*A knife. We recommend either; a locking Victorinox swiss knife w/saw and non serrated blade, OR a Leatherman mutitool w/saw, OR a Mora knife for beginners. Base models can be obtained for $20-$35. Non recommended brands are acceptable, however we do not guarantee their performance 

*Tents are allowed though students have the option to sleep in actual survival shelters they make themselves from the environment, no matter what the weather

*A sleeping bag appropriate for the time of year

*A water bottle

*Work gloves

*A Day Pack (school style back pack)

*A headlamp or flashlight

*Foodstuffs- We recommend Mountain House backpacker meals for main courses as they only require hot water to prepare and have a very large menu to select from. Small backpacker stoves like the "Pocket Rocket" or "Jetboil" (can be purchased at REI), or even a Coleman stove(can be purchased at Walmart), will prepare these and your morning coffee very well. MRE's are another easy option. Granola, protein bars, jerky, fruit, etc, are all great options for snacks or lunches. You will have access to your vehicle in the evening so a cooler is ok. There is also a campfire to cook on so feel free to bring cast iron cookware.

*Feel free to bring any favorite survival gear you wish to train with!

*This payment is refundable up to 14 days before the course and can be saved indefinitely as a credit after 14 days. The price is good for up to 3 people.
