Out in the wild it is all about going back to the basics.
When you are on your own in the wild, certain skills like improvising a shelter, finding directions without a compass and building a fire when you don't have match sticks are necessary for survival. On our summer camps, wilderness craft helps you learn these skills and survive such conditions. The activity improves physical strength and builds endurance and adaptability.
As one gets to live life on the wild side, with minimum use of modern equipment, wilderness training gives one a sense of accomplishment like no other.
