Wilderness Survival & Primitive Skills Bay Area, CA
Fundamentals This 2-day Course teaches the fundamental skills required for the core study of Wilderness Survival and Primitive Skills. Trackers Rangers Guild instructors begin with the basic principles of staying safe and found in a survival situation. We then cover the critical craft of woodcarving and tool use. Finally we address more in depth wilderness living and primitive skills.
The Basic Four: Shelter, Water, Fire and Food
In any survival situation you have to determine your priorities. We give you tools to assess your needs than the knowledge to actually meet them. From key principles of shelter to finding water, from making primitive fire to gathering and hunting for foods, these fundamentals can start you on a lifetime of learning and experience.
Woodcarving and Tool Use
The use of tools is what makes us human. In the modern world people don't often get the opportunity to work with their hands. We not only give the beginner the foundations of knife and tool use, we also provide one on one training to individuals looking for more advanced experience.
Wilderness Living and Primitive Skills
The wisdom of wilderness survival can lead to a deeper connection with the land around you. When students take the time to cultivate long-term relationships with the skills and land, they become competent for both the short (emergency) and long-term (village) survival situation. We address the obligations of the wilderness survival skills student to also act as a caretaker for the land that provides for them.
