WILDERNESS SURVIVAL CAMP
Outdoor Training Course
You want to experience real wilderness and connect closely with nature and the pulse of life. In the Wilderness Survival Camp, we train both the practical and mental skills you need to survive and live in the wild.
We set up our survival camp immersed into pristine wilderness. Nature challenges us from the very beginning: To survive in the wild, we have to build shelters and a fireplace; gather firewood, make fire; assess water and, if necessary, treat it; find food, catch and prepare fish; make utensils from natural materials etc. Every action is outdoor survival training in practice.
Living in the wild also requires further skills: navigation in the vast landscape, finding all the essentials of life, recognizing hazards, etc. For this we train our five (six, seven…) senses. Animal tracking, bird language and how to keep a low profile are further topics we train during the survival course. We expand our awareness onto the land, immerse ourselves in it. Here we unfold our true, truly human nature. Facilitated solo times support these processes.
The course lives from the fellowship of all participants. As much as the group depends on all members to actively participate, the group can enhance the learning process of each and every one. Open talking circles and facilitated sharings on the exercises provide the space for this.
