August 11-12 - Embden, ME


You get lost on a hiking trail, turned around during a hunt, or stranded in a remote area. How do you survive? More than 2,000 people get lost in the woods each year and most survival scenarios like this are unplanned. You have your everyday carry bag, but do you have the right tools to survive? Can you meet your basic needs with the tools you have? EDC (Every Day Carry) Wilderness Survival trains you to be 10 steps ahead of meeting all your basic needs with a few, simple pieces of gear that are easy to carry. The focus is on modern survival skills, emphasizing basic skills, equipment, and preparedness with the expectation of rescue within 72 hours.

Utilizing everyday carry items you’ll learn to provide for your basic needs: shelter, water, fire and food. Invest in the most convenient way out of a bad situation and revel in the peace of mind of the ultimate back up plan.
