Adult Wilderness Survival


The modern world doesn't prepare you for the rigors of the wild. In order to truly be self-sufficient, you must prepare yourself for the elements.

Shelter. Food. Fire. These are the things we need to survive. With the right set of skills and materials, you can overcome the challenges of nature and feel comfortable in the woods, no matter the circumstances. Our founder Eric Stone, naturalist and NYS certified trail guide, spends his days in the woods. He can make fires out of gathered materials, erect a shelter with speed and efficiency, and source food and water in any environment. This full day of skill-building will teach you all of these basics, and prepare you for anything the elements throw at you.

Packing List Before the start of the program, we send an email to all participants with the packing list and arrival instructions. 


How we enjoy the cold The packing list will include what is the best material and clothing to have your child wear at camp to avoid feeling uncomfortable and cold.  As long as these lists are followed, there won't be a problem with temperature regulation. We also often have campfires as part of our programming, especially in the winter season. Another tool our teachers use to keep kids warm is to do running around outdoor games when they notice the kids may start to get cold. This really pumps up the blood and helps keep kids warm! 

COVID Safety Mask wearing is optional, unless you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive. Read more about our COVID policies here.


Weather Safety Class will occur in sunny or rainy weather. Class is cancelled only due to dangerous weather (temps below 20 F, lightning, high winds) or any COVID or health concerns. We offer a 50% credit for the cancelled day that can be used for any future registration with us.

If anyone has any additional questions, please email
