THE BOSS STUDENT EXPERIENCE
Each course teaches what we view as the essential skills for survival in the desert or anywhere. This includes hard skills like friction fire and knots, as well as skills such as survival mindset and decision-making. Longer courses offer time to learn more skills, and to practice and gain proficiency in them.
Challenge and Growth
BOSS courses are designed to challenge students. The challenge is different for each student: sometimes it is the limited food, sometimes it is the heat or desolation of the desert, often it is something unexpected. Our courses are tough. More than 50 years of experience have shown us that when we expect a lot of our students, they rise to the challenge.
The land we travel through is as rugged and demanding as it is beautiful. Look from the slopes of Boulder Mountain across millions of acres of canyon desert to see clear into Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Explore the earthy depths of red slot canyons. Discover springs hidden in a sun-scorched desert. Camp next to mountain meadows overflowing with wildflowers.
BOSS survival school reviews
Some words from past students:
“The BOSS Field Course was extremely challenging, both inwardly and outwardly. I wish I had taken it in my 20’s…and again in my 30’s…and again in my 40’s…” –BOSS alum
