Students will form a solid foundation in the basics of survival: shelter, water, food, and fire.  Emphasis is placed on creating experienced based knowledge.  We will not only learn survival skills, but also the principles underlying these skills.  Rather than struggling against the environment, it is important to know how to thrive within
it.  We are cultivating a deeper sense of self, expanded awareness, and a greater understanding of our place in the natural world.
I have used the word ‘absorbed’, in preference to ‘learned’, for jungle lore is not a science that can be learned from textbooks; it can, however, be absorbed, a little at a time, and the absorption process can go on indefinitely, for the book of nature has no beginning, as it has no end.
-Jungle Lore by Jim Corbett

Some of the skills we will learn:
