We were founded in Alaska, Grown in Arizona and currently located in Tacoma, WA! We are a veteran owned and operated training school that teaches a variety of wilderness education courses for all skill levels. We offer courses such as Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness Survival, Natural Navigation, and offer different survival scenario adventures. You will learn skills such as the priorities of survival, friction fire methods, debris shelters, natural navigation, & food harvesting. We also offer traditional First Aid/CPR courses with a 2 year certification from your choice of  American Red Cross or Emergency First Response. 


All these skills and more will allow you to travel vast distances, give you mental and physical confidence, and allow you to keep yourself and others safe while in the outdoors. If you know more, you can carry less, and the key to survive is to never give up, and never stop thinking.

Our classes are designed for people who already love enjoying the outdoors or want to get out more! Whether that means your a weekend hiker, avid hunter, outdoor professional, wanderlust wanderer, or any type of outdoorsman/woman! These classes are for you!
