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.

       "I had the pleasure of collaborating with Rob Krolikiewicz to design and execute our McChrystal Group Leadership Venture in November, 2019. These ventures combine adventure education with personal and professional development and offer opportunities to build cohesion between teammates. This venture took us to Yosemite National Park for a 4-day excursion with twenty-three team members and challenged people to think about how they connect with others and their environment. Planning begins months in advance and incorporates diverse elements to maximize engagement. Throughout both planning and execution, Rob was a consummate professional and offered invaluable insight and expertise to enrich the quality of the experience.
       During the preparation phase, Rob was a creative thought partner in supporting our team’s goals. We aimed to give people a robust outdoor experience and wanted to tie an element of formal learning amidst intellectual conversation. We brought in Rob and were immediately impressed with the quality of his programming and flexibility. He was approachable, easy to correspond with, and an active listener. Once we determined scheduling and locations, Rob made set up and break down seamless and easy.
       While on site in Yosemite, Rob went above and beyond to connect with our team before and after his portion of the schedule. During his classroom instruction, our group (consisting of hikers with mostly low or zero experience) learned about the survival priorities and recommended tools. During the live session the next morning, we assembled shelters, constructed fires, and learned the basics of navigation and signaling. Throughout, Rob remained the expert facilitator – demonstrating proper technique, encouraging experiential learning, managing time, and leading debriefs. Both the classroom instruction and live session ranked among the highest rated activities in our standard post-event survey taken by attendees.
       I am excited to see K12 Survival Solutions continue to push boundaries and bring quality programming to individuals and teams around the world – Rob has my strongest endorsement."
