HOW IS PRICE DETERMINED?

Every custom course is priced specifically to that course. Many factors determine the price once I know: the duration of the program, the number of participants, course content and distance of travel.

Knives have proven themselves to be the most useful tools in the woods. They are used to carve, slice, and cut our way through any task that is thrown at us. Being able to effectively and safely use a knife is a crucial survival skill, and a must-know for anyone who is passionate about adventuring outdoors. The items chosen for this class depend on the age and experience of students. Wall hooks, spreader knives, feather sticks, tent stakes, wooden animals, and fishing handlines are potential options for this class.
