What you can expect

Discover the secrets of making it in the wild as you learn to make fires, build shelters, trap animals, and identify edible plants. This all-encompassing introduction to primitive survival gives you the basic tools necessary to endure the elements and rekindle your relationship with Mother Nature.

Meet your guide—a local outdoor expert—in the woods outside of San Francisco’s urban bustle and settle in for a series of hands-on lessons focused on essential survival techniques. Find out how to choose the right sticks for a fire-making bow drill and practice igniting your own glowing embers. Gather branches and logs to create emergency shelters that could protect you from harsh winds and rains. Get advice on the right way to purify water for drinking, and harvest edible plants while learning about their various nutritional and medicinal benefits.

With an arsenal of new skills and a deeper connection with nature, wrap up your outdoor adventure practicing the day’s techniques. Before you leave, ask your guide for a few last-minute tips and jot down important notes so you can work on honing your abilities back home.
