BORN SURVIVOR COURSE

This three day survival course is ideal for those who want to venture out of the urban environment and gain valuable life skill sets. This course really opens your eyes to what is around you and will change the way you look at the wilderness forever. It encourages a deeper connection and understanding of nature and the way it can be manipulated to your advantage in a survival situation. It provides you with the basic skill set and survival training to feel comfortable  to explore wilderness environments.

DESCRIPTION

We use two locations for this course depending on the season. One being set in the idyllic and majestic Snowy Mountains on the banks of the mighty Snowy River and the other in the Semi-arid Murray sunset national park near Mildura.

 

The Murray-Sunset National Park, in Victoria’s far north-west corner, is in one of the few remaining semi-arid regions in the world where the environment is relatively untouched. With its wide open landscapes, breath taking sunsets and starry nights, its vastness and isolation is perfect for our born survivor course.

This survival course is perfect for the adventurer seeking a broader understanding of core survival subjects. This course aims to equip you with the knowledge, skill-set and confidence to enjoy wilderness environments safely.

All of the subjects we have chosen to cover on this course lay the framework for more advanced survival training courses and have been chosen so you get the most out of the weekend. Each skill is explained in detail and expertly demonstrated, after which you are encouraged to apply the skill for the duration of the course. No experience is necessary and it’s suitable for everyone and anyone, although a reasonable level of fitness is required.

This course has a maximum capacity of 10 people to ensure you get the most out of your experience and to maintain good instructor to participant ratio.
