Wilderness Survival

Intro to Fire Building – AR

Learn several friction fire methods that will enable you to create fire from natural materials using the bow drill

FIRE STARTER – INTRO TO BOW DRILL

In this one-day class, you will learn the bow drill and how to create fire from natural materials. You will also learn various types of fire setups. Each participant will harvest their own bow drill kit from the land to take home.

Fire is a critical component of survival and can mean the difference between life and death. It’s essential that you are able to make a fire quickly in any weather condition using tools or natural resources from your surroundings. Besides the benefits of warmth and light, fire also assists in water purification, signaling, warding off predators, cooking, and wound disinfection.

WANT TO ADD ONTO YOUR TRAINING

Before our Intro to Fire Building course we will be having our Knife Skills and Safety course. If you’re interested, you can bundle the two classes at checkout for $70/person. The course description is below.

KNIFE SAFETY SKILLS (9-12 PM)

Most of us didn’t grow up with a knife in hand, whittling tools and creature comforts from the landscape out of necessity. Knife skills are disappearing and becoming an under-appreciated skill. This class is fantastic for all experience and skill levels.

We will cover a range of skills from:

  • knife and ax safety
  • batoning
  • useful saw techniques and safety
  • biomechanics of knife use (how to use your knife more efficiently when calories count)

Knife skills seem simple…take the sharp edge, remove wood, try not to cut yourself. Like most bushcraft and survival skills, the devil is in the details. This workshop will provide you the training to effectively and safely use sharp cutting tools in the field.

The instructors have a knack for gauging your experience level and giving you appropriately challenging tasks to progress your skills. This is done from varying projects from tent stakes to wooden spoons and netting needles. No prior experience needed, but if it is there, you will be challenged.

Recommended Equipment/Materials:

  • Food for meals & snacks
  • Water (there is a well on site, but well water is an acquired taste)
  • Bug spray, sunscreen
  • Fixed blade full tang knife
  • Waterproof shoes / boots
  • Ferro rod
  • Bushcraft knife

FAQs

Am I responsible for my own food and water? Yes, bring enough food and water for at least one day. We do have access to a kitchen and refrigerator for food storage.

Will I have cell phone service? Yes, cell phone service is actually very strong at our camp.

What is the bathroom situation? Bathroom facilities are available onsite.

Is smoking and alcohol allowed? Smoking is allowed, alcohol is prohibited

Should I tip my instructor? Tipping is common in this industry, but please don’t feel pressured to do so. If you feel that your instructor has gone above and beyond to provide you a quality class and you would like to tip them, it will be greatly appreciated.
