It's NOT just for outdoor diehards. It's for YOU.
Because when you empower your life outdoors ... you empower your LIFE everywhere.
Most of us don't think we "need" outdoor skills. Except even weekend warriors or people who "aren't going that far or that long" ...
  • Get LOST ...
  • Sprain or break an ankle ...
  • ​Suffer heat exhaustion or hypothermia ...
  • ​Want to feel comfortable with the right gear and equipment in the outdoors ...
  • Want to stay safe ...
  • ​Want to stay in wilderness control ...
the hiking the ozarks outdoor education curriculum was designed to keep you safe, comfortable and performing at your best so you get the most out of your time outdoors ...

Following your 3.5 hour classroom instruction, you'll head to Busiek State Park to put your classroom skills to work. 

Meet at the Walmart in Branson West, MO and travel approx 20 minutes to private land

Your skills aren't going to get better unless you practice them IN A REAL LIFE SCENARIO. Spend 24 - 36 hours outdoors to do just that. PHASE I SURVIVAL IS A PREREQUISITE FOR THIS CLASS.

WILDERNESS FIRST AID (June 13, 9 - 4pm)

Life Point Church, Ozark MO for class portion and practicals

When seconds count, it's important that you know EXACTLY what to do in an emergency. Unlike other wilderness first aid classes, this class provides you with practical exercises to mimic real world emergencies to test your skills - so if and when the time comes, you're actually prepared. 
LAND NAVIGATION (NEW DATE: July 11, 9 - 4pm)

Life Point Church, Ozark MO for class portion with practicals at Busiek State Forest

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.
