Q1: Are there any skills that people need to have coming into this event? Will people who have only camped a few times be fine?
A1: This event is designed as an introduction course. We will be teaching site selection, fire building, fishing and cleaning as well as self defense.
Q2: Is there a required gear list? Anything people flying in should be preparing for? Food?
A2: There is a gear list, which will be sent out to people once they register. Bringing water is critical, even though we will be providing some. Food is covered in your registration.
Q3: Speaking of flying in should people plan on flying in the day before and out the day after? Or, would an early flight on the Friday then a late flight on the Sunday work?
A3: You should plan on coming in the night before and leaving the day after. We did plan this event so it wasn’t necessary, but it would certainly cut down on stress of not having to rush.
Q4: What qualifies your instructors to run these events?
A4: All of our instructors hold certifications in their respective fields, or have extensive experience. For example, our Wilderness First Aid instructor is a NC certified Fire Fighter and Paramedic Instructor who runs his own company on the side. Our fishing instructor runs a Non-Profit focused on getting veterans outdoors fishing and hunting. The self-defense instructor is a Marine Corps Martial Arts Program Instructor.
