Edge of the Wild is a 3-day course in which you’ll learn, discuss, and experience practical skills that can be game changers when an adventure doesn’t go as planned.
Through the application of critical thinking and practical skills, we can find options and possibly generate a solution to any problem. By providing skills and tools to combat issues you could encounter on an adventure, we remove the fear of the unknown and empower you in your exploration of the outdoor world. This course addresses psychology, clothing selection, first-aid, fire, water, emergency shelters, navigation, and signaling. We work through each section in an Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable method to ensure each adventurer has a positive experience and fully understands each skill and its context.
Are you curious about what should be in your pack for a day-hike or hunting trip? Do you want to be more confident when taking the family camping? Maybe you are just interested in brushing up on some basic skills. This is a great course for anyone wanting to be more self-sufficient in the wilderness.
