Teaching wilderness skills to optimize your survival


We are a school that is dedicated to teaching practical survival skills. We are a school of wilderness survival that focuses on teaching skills that will help you survive in an unfortunate wilderness or urban scenario. If you are a hiker, backpacker, or the "outdoor adventurous" type and would like to strengthen your knowledge and experience preparing for the unexpected, check us out.
Who we are not: An organization that preaches any type of ideology, spiritual chanting, or uses scare tactics to learn our skills.


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. Our intent is aimed to increase your comfort level for the outdoors. K12 Survival Solutions also provides team building and leadership instructional events for corporate clients creating a collaborative team environment and innovative team development.

K12 Rated in the Top 10 Survival Schools by Outdoor Life Magazine

K12 Survival Solutions is dedicated to teaching wilderness survival, fire making, and provides training courses that are customized to students. This school will send you home with reproducible skills and a new level of confidence in the outdoors. Founded and operated by Rob “K12” Krolikiewicz, it is an up and coming survival school, bringing some of the best modern and primitive wilderness survival skills gleaned from two decades of military survival training. Rob served 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, and in that time he trained and operated all over the world (Afghanistan, Iraq, the Philippines, and above the Arctic Circle to name a few). He is also a SERE school graduate. K12 offers one day and multi-day courses, corporate team building events and leadership adventures. Based in New Jersey, courses are most frequently held in K12’s home state, as well as Pennsylvania and Virginia (though private and custom courses are available elsewhere). I’ve taught with Rob, and few instructors are as dedicated to ensuring each and every student leaves the class with the skills they actually need and a new comfort level in the outdoors, as he is.
