Survival and outdoor skills course for kids

Kids Course is only available to a Registered Parent or Guardian.

Occurring simultaneously to the main course, there will be a special itinerary for children. 

Our talented Faculty will take turns teaching sessions. The kids will learn many survival and outdoor skills.

  • Fire-starting techniques
  • Ropes and knots
  • Climbing basics, including some rappelling
  • Much, much more!


The kids survival/outdoor skills course is open to all kids older than 7 yrs old. It is geared towards children age 8-16. We found that older teens prefer to sit in on the main course.
