Class Experience

Students will leave class with basic skills to survive if lost in the wilderness. Some of these skills will also be helpful during natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, power outages etc.
Having been exposed to camping and wilderness since I could walk, I have a passion for teaching others the skills for surviving in the wilderness. Considering recent acts of nature around the world, including earthquakes, hurricanes, flash floods and tsunamis, I also believe it is essential for everyone to have at least the minimal skills needed to start a fire, forage for food, find and treat water, and build a shelter. 

My life experience, as well as recent coursework thru Alderleaf Wilderness College give me the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to pass this important information on to your learner on a level that they can understand!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class will be presented via powerpoint presentation and includes several short video clips which will keep younger students engaged and enhance learning opportunities. Students are encouraged to ask or answer questions, and we will also share recent or upcoming camping and wilderness adventures! Although homework is not required, students are encouraged to practice the newfound skills they learn in each class, and are also encouraged to share their knowledge with their families.

**Parents should be aware that this class discusses survival protein - - which includes fish, frogs, eggs, snakes and insects. I am a huge animal lover and cringe at the thought of having to take the life of a small animal, but when faced with the prospect of surviving in the wilderness, this is a life-saving skill that needs to be addressed. If this is offensive to you, please consider another class instead. :)
