Primitive Hunter Gatherer Level 2 Course is a 5-Day complete immersion course that follows the 5-Day Hunter Gatherer Level 1 complete immersion course (11/30 – 12/4) and the Solo Experience (12/5 – 12/6).  For students that have already completed Level 1 and the Solo Experience, studies will begin on 12/7.

============================

During our 2 week immersion through both our level 1 and level 2 hunter gatherer experience, you will be challenged to learn and experience the world of survival in a way that will help you not only learn to survive, but to fully engage and thrive in your natural environment, while also experiencing a deeper connection to the natural world that sustains us.

Additionally, you will be placed into a situation where your survival skills are tested.

The full level 1 and level 2 experience together is a 24/7 immersion program that starts on Monday morning and finishes Sunday at noon with a one-night break in between level 1 and level 2.

During this immersion course you will be allowed to bring some basic survival items, but one at a time these will be taken away as you rapidly develop primitive skills and learn to move from mentality of “surviving” to “thriving” in the wilderness.
