Join Wild Bear as we team up with Owl Eyes Wilderness Survival to host a series of workshops to gain valuable skills for our adventures in the wild. These 3 survival classes are designed to help you go deeper into your skills over time. As the classes progress, the skills become more connective and go off of the previous skills you have learned. The majority of the classes will be hosted outdoors whenever possible and weather permitting, bundle up and get prepared to enter the wild with greater confidence and new tools for your adventures.
What you’ll do
This introductory class will set you up with the basic skills to keep yourself warm, hydrated, fed, and found. Learn to use and sharpen a knife safely, tie 5 basic knots, set up a tarp shelter, outdoor clothing selection, build and start a fire with only 1 match, purify water, forage for wild edible plants, basic compass techniques, and hunt with simple weapons. These skills are the foundation to your survival practice, and we recommend this class to anyone who wishes to enjoy the great outdoors!
What to Bring
There are several outdoor components to this class, so bring weather appropriate clothing.
