The Cottonwood Institute is proud to feature its Essential Survival Skills course for adults. This four day action-packed course is designed to teach participants how to stay alive during a real survival situation. Throughout the four days, we will hike to a base camp and practice nature awareness skills, minimum impact camping techniques, natural shelter construction, and starting fires using primitive and modern methods. We will also participate in a 24-hour survival scenario to put our skills to the test followed by a debriefing of the scenario and discussion about long-term survival considerations. Lastly, we will complete an environmental service project to give back to the land. This course will take place from October 2 – 5, 2008 near Nederland, CO and is for those eighteen years and older. If you don’t have what it takes to survive, but want to learn, register for this course today!
