Pathfinder Basic Survival Class (3 day 2 night course)

Pathfinder Certfication Course

The purpose of the Basic Survival Class is to provide students with the knowledge to survive a 72 hr. emergency scenario, using the items from a 10 piece survival kit. The multi-functionality of the items within the kit will be discussed, demonstrated and applied to self-aid situations related to Core Temperature Control (CTC). These will include: Fire Craft, Shelter Construction and Water Collection.

Basic does not mean easy, it means the essential facts or principles of a subject or skill. Our essentials will revolutionize your outdoor training by pushing you beyond the limits you would otherwise push yourself. You can expect to walk an average of five miles per day carrying your gear (approx 35lb) on your back. Your first night at camp, you may utilize your hammock, tent or other comfort items, but they must be packed away and put back in your vehicles by the morning of day two. At that time you will rely solely on your survival kit for the rest of the class. You will complete various timed exercises, both solo and as part of a team. Each deliverable is designed to make you more self reliant. If you don't give up on yourself, we won't give up on you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Regardless of your experience or skill level in the woods, the basic class is a very intense class and is the foundation from which all of the other classes are built. This class will require hikes 2+ miles a day (on hilly, uneven terrain) while carrying your gear. The last night you will be required to sleep in a temporary shelter that you will construct earlier that day.

It is highly recommended that you take the Basic class before taking any of the “advanced” classes (anything above the Basic class). Again, this class is the Foundation, and without it, you will likely not pass more advanced classes. No refunds will be issued for classes you don't pass.

Attendance Policy:

Non-Certifying:
When a student enrolls it is fully expected that they intend to certify in Basic Survival (by going for the patch); we do not allow anyone to remain in camp without instructors present. If you fall behind due to an inability to complete assigned tasks, but are keeping up and doing your best- GREAT! Keep it up and complete the course to the best of your ability. However, should you be hindered in your ability to keep up with the group due to physical injury or other health problem(s), we will go above and beyond to get you back in the game by aiding in your mobility, administering hydration and personal motivation! But, should those efforts fail, you may be forced to tap out at which time you will need to leave the school grounds.

Age Requirements:

Any student under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Young Adults 13 yrs old & older are full price. Children 10-12 yrs old attend FREE (one child per paying student). This class is not recommended for youths under age 13.

Children ages 10-12 must remain with their parent/guardian at all times.

Children ages 10-12 will not qualify for a patch.

If your child is left in camp repeatedly or left alone to be cared for by staff, you will fail the class.

If you bring a minor that is not your child you must have a signed Emergency Care Authorization form filled out by that child's parent(s) or legal guardian.  Download the form by clicking on this link -
