Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

Survival Courses this Autumn/Winter
Dear Forum I would like to know if this is something any of you would be interested in?

1 day introduction course for individuals or groups in English.
Based on the "Lofty Wiseman" P.L.A.N system.

This course would be the forerunner to a Level2 (2day) training in 2017.
What this is not is Ray Mears style Bushcraft or wilderness living nor is it Bear Grylls style theatrical TV.

The course location and time can be tailored to suit you, it can be in a group or as a Family or individual.
Price upon application ( depends on the distance i have to travel or if you come to me )

We will examine the true skills required to survive the unexpected and await rescue.
We will look at various types of survival kit - kits - tools & clothing.
For families, what to carry in your car/boat/canoe, on your person.

Protection : Medical/Clothing/Shelter/Fire
Location: Signals/Rescue
Acquisition: Water/food/resources
Navigation: Priority/Map compass/terrain

We can also start a discussion here on the forum prior to training - i'll glad answer questions on the subject.

Who am I?
I have been practicing the art of Survival & Bushcraft since my youth, I was keen Scout & Scout group leader in the UK.
I am married with 3 children & live near St Gallen.
I have completed an extensive survival training to Level4 (7 days immersiv), Advanced navigation & Medical training (First Aid in the workplace/outdoors) with the Trueways School in the UK

Stay safe

Simon

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

My thoughts are circa 100.- per person for a session from 10am to 17.00
Basic course material would be provided as well as a "Cook your own lunch"
If we can get a group of 4 or more I would provide the fire starters for free to keep & on a 2 day course a basic Mora survival knife.

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

Very interested for hubby & son. Been looking for something like this but didn't think possible in CH!

The 2 day would be along the lines of what they are looking for.

Feel free to PM me.

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

My husband and I enjoy making fun of the poor decisions made when we watch survival shows on TV. I always thought it might be interesting to take a course like this and actually put our money where our mouth is (as the saying goes).

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

As I have yet to have enough students to make this a full time job , I am currently booking courses on an on demand nature for groups and individuals.

If your interested then let me know when you would have time and if you would like a one or two day course and if you would rather i come to you for a workshop or you come to me for a weekend.

I am also giving one day workshops on:
Fire lighting
Navigation
Shelter
Equipment selection
Knife and Axe use

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

Simon- do you also do shorter things? Like a half-day or one-day course for a group of work colleagues?

Re: Survival Courses for Adults & Kids

Yes I can, we can go over the basic rules and depending on location make a fire lighting exercise for example ..
