The Deal

Students learn techniques to help survive wilderness emergencies including key first aid skills, concepts for preventing injuries, and proper ways to respond to a medical emergency outdoors. California Survival School provides all materials and tools necessary for the course, though participants should bring a lunch, snacks, water, and, if desired, means for taking notes. All clinics last from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. See the school’s upcoming events for dates and locations.

California Survival School

The instructors at California Survival School impart decades of wilderness-survival know-how during outdoor, hands-on courses. Participants prepare themselves to live self sufficiently off the land using both modern and primitive techniques, which can come in handy when lost in the woods or the year 1412. During the Core Survival Skills Adventure Clinic, up to 30 students spend five hours learning to create fire using only sticks, build shelters with natural materials, purify water, and feed themselves off the land. The Ancient Artisans Workshop teaches novices how to fashion crude implements from scratch with materials found in nature, and how to use them while out in the wilderness. California Survival School also offers team-building workshops and private events.
