A 3 day survival trip. This class is the toughest class offered by OEWS and is an "invite only" course available to students who hold the Alula Certification. This class will be held in Vermont October 18th-20th 2024. Sign up HERE.

The Outdoor Wilderness Living Challenge is an exclusive survival course only available to adult students who have completed Wilderness Survival 1-4, The Survival Outdoor Skills Challenge, received all 4 feather patches, metal feather pin, and hold an Alula Certificate.

Students will need to forage and fish for their own food, create natural containers to disinfect drinking water, build and sleep in their own shelters, and start fires by rubbing sticks together. Completion of this course truly shows excellence and proves the survivalist's skillset. Gear will be limited to only your clothing and a wool blanket for the beginning of this class. Students will need to earn their survival kit materials to better their situation.


After completion of Wilderness Survival 1-4 and The SOS Challenge, students will be invited to this exclusive survival trip.
