"WEEKEND" Primitive Classes and Courses for
Traditional Survival Skills

This is a list of the "WEEKEND" primitive courses we offer at this time. To read more about the difference between the Saturday Classes and the Weekend Courses, please visit the "About Us" page. Basically, the weekend course allows the participant an extra day to further develop and practice the skills presented in the Saturday Wilderness Classes. In addition, certain skills may require a second day to complete the activity. For example, Deer Hide tanning, Survival Bow making & Primitive pottery, often require a second day to finish a specific project. In other classes the extra day provides the practice and experimenting time required to better master a skill. Please remember, KNOWLEDGE is not competence. COMPETENCE requires PRICTICE !! To view the schedule for each course please visit our "Calendar"
