Wilderness Survival Skills (Acolyte)

Earth Type

The Wilderness Survival Skills Course is intended for everyone who goes outside at any time of year, in any terrain, for any form of outdoor activity.

The two-day wilderness survival skills course instills in pupils the importance of being prepared for the outdoors and knowing what to do if something goes wrong or they become lost in the woods. What happens when you are lost or alone in the wilderness? Fear begins to rise first, followed by anger. You are accompanied by panic, fever, cold, pain, exhaustion, hunger, thirst, boredom, and loneliness. When things go awry, wilderness survival skills can help put things back together. As a manner of life, I live in the woods. The emphasis in this game is on living in the forest in a primitive manner.

This is the progression of Survival Skills.

Wilderness Survival Skills Training is for those who have some experience in hiking/ trekking in the Himalayas or other mountain ranges or have successfully finished survival skills.
