Learn basic bush craft and survival skills on a survival program in the Canmore area of the Canadian Rocky Mountains


Learn basic survival techniques and bushcraft skills on this survival course in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.  This program is designed to be instructional, for those who are looking for concrete skills sessions.  However, the skills can also be implemented into a team building day to make for a fun and informative day out.

The basic program may include the following skills: a variety of fire lighting techniques, fire design, shelter building (winter and summer), signalling and survival tools, constructing basic survival weapons, water purification methods, plant identification for food and medicine and animal awareness and safety.   The instructors are able to develop new programs to suit clients, so if there is a specific requirement the client has, it is likely that they can accommodate.

These programs are valuable to anyone who works or plays outdoors or any person who is interested in learning about the traditional skills used by our forefathers. This course is ideal for those people who recreate, work or travel in remote areas of Alberta. The skills taught are suitable for any mode of travel that takes you into a remote area.

The course is perfect for any backcountry guides on short or long term trips who would like to know what to do when things go wrong and how to formulate a plan to deal with the situation they are faced with using equipment they have with them or improvising from the local bush.

For those with an Advanced Wilderness or Wilderness first aid certification, this course takes you a stage further in the matrix of decision making and planning for a long/short term emergency in the outdoors. For those who hold a Standard First Aid certificate, this course will give you some strategies to deal with any unplanned survival situation that one may encounter.
