Core Survival Basics




Sliding Scale Course Fees  |  Women’s Wilderness has created a sliding scale for all its Women’s programs in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people.  All our pricing scales are significantly below the prices of for-profit companies. The top price represents the actual cost to run the course, and the second two tiers represent scholarships.  We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.

It’s wonderful being outdoors until it isn’t, as anyone who’s spent much time in the wilderness knows. So how do I take care of myself and loved ones if the situation goes from lovely outing to dangerous life threatening struggle? Come find out. We’ll cover what your priorities are, how to prepare, and learn some basic skills that have meant the difference between life and death for many.

This single-day training covers the CORE Survival Training Essentials relating to the five basic needs of a survivor. Students will receive hands-on training covering how to decide whether to stay put or hike out; choosing and maintaining the ultimate survival tool – your knife; Signaling – the unsung and most important survival skill; Travel basics; Water; Essential Knots; Shelter basics; Fire principles; Food rationing; and Survival Kit preparation.

Our instructor Jessie Krebs has been a United States Air Force survival instructor, has taught all kinds of people outdoors for 25 years, and starred in National Geographic’s “Mygrations” as part of a human “herd” traveling across the Serengeti, as well as in “Kicking and Screaming, AND most recently on the Science Channel’s “Hacking the Wild.”
