(You may complete the in app version of the class if you do not attend the live class - but every person attending must do one or the other.)

LAND NAVIGATION (FEBRUARY 20, 2021)

Life Point Church, Ozark MO for class portion with practicals approximately 30 minutes away on private land

You could rely on your GPS device - except that when you get lost you don't always have any reception. So you're screwed. Besides, do you really want to have to rely on a device that can break? Join in for a two-part day, the first in the classroom learning the land navigation skills you've always wanted, and the second half of the day at Busiek to put those skills into practice. Fun, challenging and engaging.

SURVIVAL SKILLS PRACTICE DAY (APRIL 3, 2021)

Chadwick, MO (address will be emailed to you following registration)

You know you want to practice your skills ... but just can't find the time or the energy to do it on your own. We get it! You asked for this day that we've set aside for us to guide you through all the skills you want to master - fire, shelter, water filters, navigation, wilderness first aid or whatever else you've learned from other Hiking the Ozarks classes that you want to practice. It's always easier to practice with guidance - so here's your opportunity. Knowledge isn't power - it's potential power. Let's make it power. CLASS SIZE VERY LIMITED.
