Wilderness/Urban 3 Day Survival Workshop
A weekend jammed packed with hands on basic survival skills training designed and taught explicitly for those who have no survival training or want a more relaxed learning environment, or need a refresher course. A Survive 2 Thrive weekend will teach you all the basic skills you would need to know to survive any type of natural disaster, catastrophes or that much anticipated and talked about zombie apocalypse. The weekend starts on a Friday evening with your arrival, setting up your tent, yes tent, that means camping. Now don’t worry we have taken care of your food and will always have a clean restroom close by, so it’s not that you’re really on your own in the big bad woods. If you can’t ever imagine sleeping outside in a tent, perhaps survival training isn’t for you, but our training site is close to several hotels. We strongly recommend all participants stay at the training site alongside the instructors so you can maximize your available learning opportunities. Friday evening you will start your training experience and then have an opportunity to relax by the fire. The rest of the weekend will be spent learning skills such as proper knife handling, how to make fire using several different methods, how to make cordage, knot tying, shelter building techniques, water purification, how and where to source food, map/compass training, and finally emergency wilderness first aid training. Not only will a Survive 2 Thrive weekend give you an excellent opportunity to meet other individuals and families that are like minded but it can also build comradely within your family and also between the other families you interact with over the weekend. Imagine the amount of increased confidence you will have after learning these skills and knowing you can not only survive but thrive when disaster strikes. Families with adolescent children are encouraged to attend and work together, a family learning the same skills together is stronger in a crisis. This meetup is by reservation only, no walk ups please. To register and pay for this event please visit
