Wilderness survival training program from Vancouver, BC


Prepare for the unexpected on this wilderness survival course from Vancouver, BC. This course covers essential skills for anyone traveling in the backcountry on day trips.

You will spend one evening learning about pre-trip planning, hazard recognition and avoidance, emergency kits, survival psychology and navigation skills. An overnight field session will allow you to truly experience a night out in the local mountains with minimum survival gear.

The first evening classroom session will run from 7 pm till approx. 10 pm. This session will thoroughly cover all aspects of wilderness Survival, emrgency kits, incident response and will also serve as preparation for the field session.

The field session will be a 2-day overnight trip into a forested wilderness area. On the first day you will meet with your group at the pre-arranged trailhead. The hike into the training site is usually short (about 2 hours). You will spend the day working on skills such as shelter building, fire construction, emergency repsonse and incident management. That evening you will spend the night in your newly constructed emergency shelter (tents will be available for back-up in case of poor weather conditions).

On day-2 you will head out for a day hike in the surrounding area to practice navigation skills, route finding and other emergency skills such as using signalling devices, etc.

You will return to the trailhead at around 3:00 pm. After a short wrap-up and question session, the course will finish at around 4:00 pm.
