Pathfinder Basic Survival Class (3 day 2 night course)

Pathfinder Certfication Course

The purpose of the basic survival class is to provide the students with the knowledge to survive a 72 hr. emergency scenario using the items contained within the 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) which 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 push yourself to. You can expect to walk an average of five miles per day carrying your gear (approx 35lb) on your back at all times. 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 when you will rely solely on your survival kit for the rest of class. You will complete timed exercises in solo and team based deliverables all 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 upon. This class will require hikes of 2 1/2 miles a day (on hilly and uneven terrain) while carrying your gear. The last night you will be required to sleep in a temporary shelter that you will construct earlier in the day. It is highly recommended that you take the basic class before taking any of the “advanced” classes (anything above the basic class) because odds are that you will not pass those classes and no refunds will be issued.

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 for any reason. 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, we will go above and beyond to get you back in the game by aiding in your mobility, administering hydration and through personal motivation- but should all those 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 accompained by an adult. 13 yrs old & older pay full price. 10-12 yrs old attend FREE (one per paying student). This class is not recommended for youths under age 13. However, students with children ages 10- 12 may attend, but must remain with the parent at all times and will not be able to qualify for a patch. If your child is left in camp repeatedly or pawned off for childcare, you will fail the class.

If you are bring a minor that is not your child you much have a signed Emergency Care Authorization filled out by that child's parents or legal guardian.  Download the form by clicking on this link - https://www.selfrelianceoutfitters.com/content/Emergency-care-authorization.pdf

Due to property insurance restrictions: There will be NO camping on the school property prior to the start of the class or after the classes concludes.
