About the Program
This program is designed to educate students on survival situations; how to best prepare for wilderness adventures, mitigate risks and the important skills for managing incidents and surviving in the wilderness. We will practice survival skills so that students will have personal experience managing potential life threatening situations.
Lessons will include pre-trip planning, assessing and mitigating hazards, prioritization in the event of an incident, shelter and fire-building.
