Whether you are a casual hiker, weekend warrior, or serious outdoorsmen, live in the country or the city, these soft and hard skills are universal to survive and thrive in any given scenario, whether it be just daily living, recreational camping, or wilderness survival.
We will meet at the Falling Creek Bike Park in Bedford. Enter Falling Creek park across from the sheriffs office, at the roundabout take a left and at the end of the road is the bike park in a gravel parking lot. You will see a shelter and our fire ring will be just past it.

Some of the topics we will cover:
