he confidence to embark on your own wilderness experience.

The Bushcraft and Survival Course is set in the challenging and rugged terrain of the South Chilcotin Mountains in British Columbia. This majestic setting alone provides enough inspiration to expand your vision and horizons in life. In this wilderness course, however, we incorporate new challenges for you to tackle each and every day. The bushcraft skills that you learn and master throughout the course are a means of building greater confidence as you become more accustomed to operating outside of your comfort zone. When nature creates unexpected challenges for us, our problem-solving skills and ability to be flexible and adaptable are called into play. This means you’ll leave with the competence and confidence to embark on your own life-changing wilderness experiences.
