New Jersey 4-Day Family Survival Weekend

Our weekend programs are a great way to introduce the whole family to the wonders of survival and develop meaningful connection and confidence in nature. We cover the basic skills of shelter, water, fire and food as well as increase enjoyment and comfort in nature through awareness activities and games. Our holiday weekend 4-day programs allow us to expand into other areas of skill including stone tools and tracking. Join us for this inspiring family adventure!

Because of the extended weekend we are able to cover enough of what is included in the Family, Youth and Teen Experience that we will allow this class to be used as the prerequisite course for our advanced summer classes. So if you've got your eye on an advanced class but can't attend for two weeks during the summer, this is a great opportunity.

Ages and Prerequisites:

Families with children age 4 on up!  (Children younger than 4 years old are welcome as long as guardians supervise them  at all times.)

This program is designed for families to attend together and is open to youth and teens. 

Parents or guardians must participate in the program with their children.
During the program, kids are with their parents/guardians most of the time and older teens may go on more challenging adventures. No former experience is necessary.
