The wilderness survival courses all cover the the five fundamentals of survival: shelter, fire, water, food, and signaling. Students learn skills such as building emergency shelters, wilderness cooking, bow hunting, and water purifying.
Zombie wilderness survival experiences incorporate the above survival skills into a game. At the outset, each participant chooses to be either a Zombie or Survivor; while they practice wilderness survival, they also battle each other, with Zombies striving to “bite” Survivors with red watercolor to transform them into Zombies, and Survivors striving to remove Zombies’ flag-football-style flags to “kill” them. Zombie experiences with paintball allow both teams to defend themselves with paintball guns, too.

Surviving in the wilderness can be challenging—especially during the zombie apocalypse. But some of Wilderness Survival's courses prepare students for just this situation, incorporating practical lessons into a simulated battle between zombies and humans, complete with optional paintball warfare. Other courses focus purely on the practical aspects of survival, such as building a shelter, finding wild edible plants, purifying water, and learning how to roundhouse kick the wings off pesky mosquitoes.
