Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Beginner Level
This class is taught in English.
Learners will finish this class with three simple acronyms to help them remember the steps to take in a survival situation. They will have a better understanding of the dangers present in the wilderness. Finally, they will have increased confidence to get outside and connect with the natural world.
I am a Certified Wilderness First Responder through the company Remote Medical Training. This has certified me to address medical emergencies in remote settings. 

I've taught wilderness survival to a countless number of kids since 2015.

I've led wilderness survival/bushcraft camps with the company Coyle Outside in Oregon. 

I've guided wilderness backpacking and canoe trips through Camp Kooch-I-Ching in Minnesota.
Homework Offered
I often have optional exercises for students to practice outside of class. I am always interested to hear from learners putting my lessons to use. I would love to see photos or videos of any of these skills in action so that I can give feedback.
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class is primarily oriented towards techniques and technologies for survival situations. The topics of injury and death are inherent in the subject, but not the focus of the class. There is no gory imagery or video footage.
