Wilderness Survival 1
|Wilderness Survival 1||August 12-13||Bryson City, NC|
Most rescues happen within the first 72-hours. This introduction to survival teaches how to use these critical hours to stabilize your situation and assist in your own rescue. Instructors demonstrate techniques associated with the six essential concepts of wilderness survival: shelter, firecraft, food finding, water purification, off-trail navigation and rescue signaling. This fun 2-day course gives students the option of sleeping overnight in their own hand-made shelters and reviews important survival gear and equipment.
