Guided 3 Day or 4 Day Backpacking Winter SURVIVAL Course

The Basic Survival Course: This is a Guided 3 Day or 4 BackPacking Winter Survival with overnight camping course designed to give you the knowledge and skills to survive for a given length of time in a hostile environment away from immediate aid. All survival situations are life threatening but with knowledge it is possible to survive until either help arrives or self rescue can be achieved.

It takes much more than the knowledge and skills to build shelters, get food, make fires, and travel without the aid of standard navigational devices to live successfully through a survival situation. A key ingrediant in any survival situation is the mental attitude of the individual (s) involved. Having survival skills is important; having the will to survive is essential.

What to expect: This is a basic survival course & includes practical teaching, hands on implementation & survival scenarios to consolidate what has been learned and then 'self rescue!' These survival courses give you a fantastic insight into survival techniques and why & when to use them. It has been disigned and is delivered by the inspirational Craig Carmody who has had first hand experience of surviving in a wide range of conditions. These survival courses are about learning and expierencing but they are a basic survival course and so you can expect to start the day with a good wholesome breakfast, lunch dinner and provided supplements of food.

Great River Outfitters prvides all neccessary survival and camping equipment. The actual trails vary depending on the particular age, fitness, experience, interest, and local conditions.

Our focus is noncompetitive, team-based activities frees you to have fun, gain skills, and build self-confidence without worrying about being "good enough" or the pressures that accompany competitive sports!
