Alpine Wilderness Survival

Grades 8-12

Alpine Wilderness Survival

Program Overview
Our Alpine Wilderness Survival offers a unique blend of hands-on survival skills and outdoor adventure experiences, neatly bound by friendly group competition. The program was born for schools looking to bring together a new group of students at the beginning of the school year or celebrate the completion of the school year by creating lasting memories with fellow students. 
Groups will journey around the mountain completing a series of Alpine Survival Challenges. These include, making fire by friction, building a shelter or elevated sleeping platform, setting a bear cache, exploring wildlife precautions, water collection/filtration and building a group improvised stretcher. The day ends with a fun game show style survival quiz to recap learning.

Please Note: Pricing for this program is $35/per person (plus tax)
