You want to experience real wilderness and deeply connect with nature and the pulse of life. In this wilderness survival camp you learn both the practical and mental skills you really need to survive and live in raw nature.
Wilderness Living and Survival
We build camp in the wilds and live immersed in pristine, wild nature. The wilds challenge us, from the very beginning: how to build camp and shelter; install a fireplace, gather firewood, make fire; assess and purify water; harvest wild food, catch fish and prepare it by simple means; use natural materials for bushcraft… This is a continous hands-on training.
The wilds also call for further skills: how to navigate in a vast landscape, find all the vital things, deal with hazards etc. Therefore, we train our five (six, seven…) senses specifically. Tracking, bird language and how to keep a low profile are further course topics. We expand our awareness onto the land, immerse ourselves in it. Here we unfold our true, human nature. Safe solo times foster these processes.
The course is driven by the group’s community. As the group depends on the collaboration of every fellow, as can the group enhance each member’s experiences and learning processes. Facilitated talking circles and exchanges about the exercises further enhance the processes of growth.
