This course is an overview of all main components that are necessary for survival in the wilderness - not just get by, but to thrive with this knowledge and skill set. We will look at the 5 C’s of survival as well as the major aspects of thriving in the wilderness:

  • Combustion (fire making)
  • Cutting tool (knife)
  • Coverage (shelter)
  • Cordage
  • Container (goods transport)
  • Water collection and purification
  • Camp set up
  • Finding and conserving resources
  • Basic tracking and foraging
  • Navigation and signalling

Join guest trainer Josef Saunders at Wreckage for an intro to wilderness survival skills. This is a 3 hour investment that will take us though all the topics above both through demonstration and hands on practice. This course will open the door of understanding to they why and how of these very useful wilderness survival practices and is perfect for both someone new to these primitive practices and those with some experience already.

Message from Josef:

Hey I’m Josef originally from Australia have now been in Canada for last 5.5 years. One of my biggest passions is nature connection and it is from this perspective that I offer Survival 101. Though the naturalists’ eye and spirit I find that I can look at the world in an interconnected way and communicate by learning the language of nature.

I feel it is important to create a space where like minded people can come together in community, practice skills together and to share knowledge and experience while bringing their questions to the table. To come back into living and sharing in a multigenerational community (village) brings us closer to working toward our true needs.
