Spend a 9-months studying outdoor skills with expert instructors. Learn wilderness survival, bushcraft and tracking. Each month, craft essential gear for your primitive survival kit (while losing the modern equivalent). Finally, test your knowledge and preparation in a 4-day spring survival trek.
At the heart of this program are our monthly weekend overnights. Each day your team trains outdoor skills with core Trackers instructors. In the evening we recreate a village while cooking over open fires. And every moment we rekindle a deep connection to nature as we learn traditional ways of living.
How It Works
Weekend Overnights Wilderness Survival Year students attend monthly training weekends from September to May. During this time you build experience and craft items for your primitive survival kit to use on your One Week Survival Trek. We also expect students to spend personal field time practicing their skill-sets beyond these weekends. Check out the class schedule below.
Weekly Training There are also learning opportunities every week.
4 Day Survival Trek During the survival trek you use your handcrafted primitive gear along with the experience you cultivated throughout the program on a foraging expedition.
Program staff includes our top Trackers instructors. Founders, core staff and many members of the Trackers community attend. It is a learning environment rich with in-depth knowledge, experience, and opportunity.
September 2019 - May 2020 This program runs September to May. Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.
