What we're about

Have you ever thought about what you would do if you became lost while on a day hike? How about if you injured yourself miles from civilization and were unable to move? Then, all too quickly dusk approaches and the realization that you will be spending the night in the wilderness begins to sets in. Being prepared for this type of situation and having a well established plan could mean the difference between life and death. That is why at the “Great Outdoors and Survival”, our chief aim is to help people build their knowledge of wilderness survival skills. Upon leaning these skills members will understand how to: become self sufficient in the wilderness, formulate a concrete plan to getting rescued safely when lost or injured and build outdoor leadership/confidence skills.

The “Great Outdoors and Survival” strongly believe a subject must be mastered before it can be taught; therefore, our teaching methods have been developed through years of education, practice, experiences and dedication of our instructors and we structure our lesson around a fundamental survival principle commonly known as the Rule’s of 3.

So what is the Rule’s of 3?

The rule’s of 3 are the guidelines that states you cannot survive more than:

-3 Minutes without air

-3 Hours without shelter or proper clothing

-3 Days without water

-3 Weeks without food

Classes we host:

-Wilderness Survival Kits

-Shelter Building

-Wild Edible Plants


-Fire Starting

-Water Purification

-Land Navigation

And much much more…
