Ready for Anything
Survival training is a vital part of the Frontiersmen program. Whether it is a class on fire-making, a day course on orienteering, or a weekend outing dedicated to tracking, trapping, and foraging, the lost skills of personal survival in the wilderness remains one of the core functions of the organization.
We believe that despite what equipment you may own, or where you may be located, the art of survival is key to ensuring you can mitigate any crisis. Whether you are lost in the woods, or if the region you're in is faced with a food shortage, the ability to live off the land, independent of "the system", could be the difference between life & death.
Our membership contains some of the most skilled outdoorsmen around, some who have spent a lifetime developing their knowledge of primitive survival & bushcraft. And each of them are willing to share their skills with other Frontiersmen.
Some skills that we focus on include:
- Preparing a campsite
- Finding & purifying water
- Fire starting
- Fishing (with or without gear)
- Identifying edible plants
- Navigation & direction sense
- Rope making & rope use
- Shelter building
- Solar cooking & cooling
- Treating injuries
