June 7 & 8, 2014  Overnight field training exercise

This course is designed to provide the skills and self-confidence to 'increase' your odds of survival in an unexpected stay in the wilderness.  Please note: neither this course, nor any other can assure your survival in a wilderness emergency.   Enrollment is open to all CMC members with any level of backcountry experience or hiking classification.


Topics covered will include, (but not limited to) avoiding a survival situation, attitude, shelters, signaling and fire craft. Survival related medical emergencies, rescue and other priorities will also be covered.


The course will consist of three evening lectures and an overnight trip, Saturday June 7th, concluding mid-morning Sunday. This is not a “sink-or-swim” field trip and we will not be surviving on roots, berries, wild mushrooms, or killing and eating bugs/wildlife. The goal is to learn from a simulated survival situation and to practice skills with the equipment we should normally carry in our daypacks.


Refund Policy:   Refunds of 100% (less a $10 charge) will only be made if a written request is made 30 days before the first class. Refunds of 50% will be made if a written request is made within 30 days before the first class. No refunds will be made after the first class. If a waitlist has been established for the school, and a replacement is found, a member can receive a refund (less a $10 processing fee). No
other requests will be honored.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
