St. Croix, US Virgin Islands- Teen Wilderness Survival

Program Description:

An all new survival program on the beautiful Caribbean Island of St. Croix. Come join us in this all new adventure in the tropical paradise. Class limited to 10 students. Class will be lead by Matt Corradino, aka “Tofu” with help from Zollie Harper and Molly Nadler.

From Matt Corradino,

This class is an amazing opportunity to dive into a completely unique survival experience. We're going to live from the land and the tropical waters in one of the wildest and most beautiful places in the Virgin Islands. We'll spend a few days getting to know and collecting island plants, making fishing spears, hooks and gear, then setting off for three nights in the Annaly Bay region of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin islands. The place where we'll make our camp is in a location that literally only a small handful of islanders know about that is only a stones throw from one of the most beautiful and healthiest reefs on the island. We'll be trying our hands at catching fish and exploring the tide pools and rugged northwest coast, as well as doing some caretaking in the sub-tropical forest all while living as a tribe in our shelters. Most of all, we'll be learning how to listen to a completely foreign environment from the forest to the coral reefs.
