Do you hike, camp, climb, hunt or spend time in the woods? 

Do you enjoy hanging out and making friends with self-reliant, adventure seeking, fun loving Bay Area dwellers?

If so, NorCal Survive is for you.

Yes, we have a 300 acre ranch in San Jose where Navy SEAL and Green Beret instructors will teach you everything you need to know about survival, teamwork and leadership. 

Leave your laptop, cell phone, social media madness, politics and stress in the city. It's time to have fun, unplug, recharge, connect with other humans and reconnect with nature on our beautiful 300 acre lot. 

How does it work?

1. SF and SJ Workshops: 

-Our workshops are FREE, but we generally ask for a small donation to help us our course costs. 

-If you would like to instruct a workshop, THAT IS GREAT! Let us know and we will set it up. 

2. NorCal Survive Camps (San Jose and Hawaii) for Men & Women:

-Every 2months, we put on overnight courses at the Norcal Survive Ranch in San Jose that are instructed by Navy SEAL, Green Berets and National Geographic Celeb Survivalists. These event cost $149-$299 depending on the instructor, course materials, duration and curriculum. 

"Just 44 miles from San Francisco, in the mountains of San Jose you will find both the adventure and peace of mind that you've been seeking. Yes, at NorCal Survive you will have to catch your dinner, sleep under the stars and learn 10+ essential survival skills. But, perhaps more importantly, you will also have a chance to unplug from technology, make new friends and reconnect with nature.

Don't get me wrong, we won't be singing "we are the people" around the fire pit and making friendship braclets. You will be challenged, slighty uncomfortable at times and constantly on the move. At the end of the course you will walk a little taller, have a new sense of self-confidence, a new community of adventure seeking friends and your S1 Certificate (Survivor 1) + Dog Tags."

-Two times per year, we have a 4night/5day event in Hawaii that is incredible. This trip is action packed and obviously. This is our S3 course. The first 2days are really intense and turn strangers into teams faster than anything I've ever witnessed. There are fitness and skill prerequisites for coming on the Hawaii trip. 

Join our group! We look forward to meeting you.
