This stand-alone course is for those that would like more hands-on practice and coaching. The weekend is spent diving into the five basic needs of a survivor in an outdoor base camp. It includes lectures, demonstrations, and student practices in a friendly, supportive learning environment. Evenings are spent cooking and eating dinner around the fire, followed by more discussion and lessons, including night navigation techniques. Smore's and dinners are included!
EVERYONE! At O.W.L.S. Skills we endeavor to create a safe and supportive learning space specifically for women and non-binary folks who are comfortable in women-only spaces. However, we do occasionally offer all-inclusive general admission classes where men are welcome as well. Our classes are intended to help people feel more confident and empowered while connecting tangibly with the land through skills and knowledge. The wilderness welcomes all, and we endeavor to meet each student where they are in their journey towards it. We can adapt many classes to those that are struggling with a variety of physical challenges as well. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
All weekend classes run from Friday at 4:00PM to Sunday at 4:00 PM. This is a 3 day/2 night course, and most people will camp out for the duration of it.
We prefer that you stay the duration of the course. You will get more out of it. However, if for any reason you are not comfortable or able to stay outside with us, you are welcome to book accommodations nearby.
Most classes are geared towards adults, so we recommend that folks be at least 10 years old for one to two-day classes; 15 for week-long courses. All children 17 years or younger must have parental/legal guardian permission to attend the course and all children 15 years old and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Children under 10 may also attend with an adult, however, they may not absorb some of the concepts. If you’d like to have a course specifically designed for children, we recommend booking a private course with us.
