ADDITIONAL SURVIVAL CLASSES
Whether you enjoy exploring the back-country, love hiking the mountains or prefer the desert, it’s important to know how to keep yourself safe when the best laid plans go awry. Purchase additional private classes to bolster your knowledge of the great outdoors and make exploring and adventuring even safer!
Each of these classes is two hours in length, and can be scheduled separately or for the same day as your Hiking/ K-9 First-Aid Seminar.
This is the real deal and can save your life if you get turned around in the back-country or lost in the trails! Learn to navigate confidently using the Military Grid Reference System and receive real world practice. All materials provided.
This course is adapted from the Marine Corps Combat Lifesaver Course and is invaluable to keep you and your loved ones safe. Learn what to include in your hiking bag, splint bones, bandage wounds, treat snake and tick bites, manage head injuries and shock and much more! All materials provided.
Survive the Night:
A sudden storm or a wrong turn can leave you facing a night in the Sierra Nevada Mountains or the high desert, where temperatures plummet and resources are scarce. Learn how to choose a potential campsite, construct a shelter, build a fire and more skills to survive the night.
If you wish to enroll in more than one class (we highly recommend you take advantage of learning these skills) than we will schedule you for either the next day after your Hiking/K-9 First-Aid Seminar, or for another day of your choosing.
These classes will be likely held by Hope Valley/Red Lake/Blue Lakes and therefore you should bring a light jacket, hiking shoes, sunblock, snacks, water, your own lunch and bug spray. Dates will be booked depending on the snow and roads.
