Field Courses

The BOSS Field Course has been our signature trip since 1968: Ultra-light travel through Southern Utah’s mountains, mesas and canyons with little more than a blanket, poncho, and a knife. No tents, sleeping bags, stoves, or backpacks, and definitely no watches, radios, or cellphones. Your goal on this wilderness survival course is to tackle big challenges as your small group hikes many miles and learns the skills you need to survive and thrive in the deep wilderness.

A BOSS Field Course is for those seeking a big challenge, skill instruction by master instructors, and a chance to renew. No previous outdoor skills or knowledge is needed.

A word from BOSS field course alumni:

Ready for the next level? The Hunter Gatherer course builds on the skills developed in field courses to truly live off the land in the famously beautiful and rugged Grand Staircase-Escalante national monument for an extended period of time.
