Topics covered include, but are not limited to, preventing a survival emergency, psychology/attitude, shelters, signaling, fire craft, and hypothermia. Survival related medical emergencies and other priorities will also be covered. This course includes three Wednesday evening lectures and one overnight field lesson that provides practical training/ experience in a simulated survival situation. This school is particularly informative to the novice/intermediate hiker, but even very experienced CMC members have found this school valuable.
May 08 from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at the CMC.
May 15 from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at the CMC.
May 22 from 7:00pm – 9:30pm at the CMC
June 1 Overnight field training exercise
The overnight is not a “sink-or-swim” field trip and we will not be surviving off of 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.
Tuition is $48.00. A textbook and some supplies will be provided.
