Teaching wilderness skills to optimize your survival

Are you a hiker, backpacker, outdoor adventurer or new to the outdoors? Are you looking to start or enhance your outdoor skills? As humans we are naturally drawn to the outdoors and adventure. But sometimes that sense of adventure can get us into trouble. Developing or honing your wilderness skills will give you the advantage you need to get to safety. We offer courses that will give you that advantage. Our training courses are held in New Jersey, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. We can also come to you! In addition to learning valuable outdoor skills, you will leave with a level of confidence for the outdoors that you never thought you had.


We teach a range of both modern and primitive wilderness skills covering the priorities of survival that will provide you the ability to live and be rescued in the wilderness. K12 Survival Solutions provides team building and leadership instructional events for corporate clients. We also provide skills to help you better prepare your home for natural or man-made disasters. We will teach you how to use everyday items in your home and vehicle that will increase your chances of survival should you find yourself in crisis.


All one-day courses will start at 8am and end at 4pm. Multiple day classes will start at 8am on the first day, 8am on the following days, and end at 4 on the last. Times are flexible as we progress through the course. Our courses are designed for adult participants 18 an older. Participants 12 and older are welcome with a parent or legal guardian. For groups or private courses, contact us directly for details.
Students are required to bring their own food and water. The school will also provide additional water for you to refill your water bottles throughout the day.
