ROLLING THUNDER

An advanced adult course designed to put your skills to the psychological and physical stress challenges experienced in a survival situation. Looking for a vision quest, this is it! Over the course of four days and three nights, you will spend one day overviewing the seven priorities of survival, map reading, and basic navigation. Beginning on day 2, you will hit the trails as you traverse the Blue Ridge Mountain’s ridges and valleys, relying on nature to survive! You will build shelters, cook the food you will be carrying over open fires that you build, and identify water sources. You will survive this survival scenario – but it will take work. You will be rescued – but you will have to earn it. After your return to civilization, you will find a new you – one that is stronger, and one that is much more confident. Register today to begin this ultimate, truly life changing adventure!
