We practice a new philosophy in outdoor education.
How do you get to have a bold new adventure without a bold new approach? You simply cant. We are new type of outdoor school that focuses on a more common sense approach to working WITH Mother Nature when she becomes a bit bold herself. We love exploring new ideas and new approaches to enjoying Mother Nature, handling all her challenges, and challenging ourselves with confidence knowing that we can come back from our adventure safe and feeling great. We are passing these feelings on to you starting with confidence building on your current set of skills and then adding more skills and gear to your mental rucksack to help make you a confident, skilled adventurer ready to take on whatever is thrown at you, both in the wildernesses and in life. Let’s face it, whatever you survive in the wilderness will serve in your life back home and in your day to day routine.
So what’s so new about us, well for starters we aren’t a survival school, despite the skills we teach, we are more focused on the philosophy of problem solving, and you start solving problems before they arise. Wilderness problem solving starts with the basic premise of using your own life experience and then attaching that experience as a component to different environments you may face, be it wilderness, tactical, hostile, or urban. All these environments are survivable with a simple problem solving mindset, and a dash of confidence to know that your plan will work, and that if things change in your plan, you have the ability to adapt to your changing environment. Things will always work out, not always the way you want, but certainly the way it’s needed to, this is true in life and in the backcountry. Our hope is that you walk way from our courses and adventures with a bold new outlook on yourself, life, and Mother Nature to help you in whatever environment you find yourself in, or on whatever path life takes you, especially if you have to cut your own trail to get where you want to go.
We only hold public classes a few times a month depending on what we teach or what contracted field experts we bring in. Most of our classes are done in private and at the request of the individual, family, or group. When you are taking a class from us, we custom tailor programs, adventures and trips to your skills set, goals and ambitions. We will conduct an evaluation of what you already know, and then build you up from there depending on comfort level and budget. All of this is to ensure you get the most out of our company. Think of us as your own concierge wildernesses skills and adventure companions. Simply put, we are here to serve you.
So, do you have an event coming up? A trip? A course you want to prepare for? Team building? Give us a call or email us, we will set up a time to meet with you in person and outline your needs, then customize a trip, class, or event to your specification and budget. It’s a lot of fun and very simple to do. You can even text us - (760) 815-7673
“Caretake this moment. Immerse yourself in its particulars. Respond to this person, this challenge, this deed. Quit evasions. Stop giving yourself needless trouble. It is time to really live; to fully inhabit the situation you happen to be in now.” ― Epictetus
