Come, Learn, Change.
Since 1968, the Boulder Outdoor Survival School–known to most simply as BOSS–has delivered life-changing, wilderness-based experiences to adventurous people from around the world. The first focus of all of our courses is on teaching our students survival and traditional skills that people have used to live in the wilderness for millennia: simple shelters, finding water, making fire with friction, the priorities and mindset of survival. The second focus of every course is offering a life-changing challenge. Since the school’s inception in 1968, BOSS has been offering people the chance to grow and change through big challenges in the wild beauty of southern Utah. As a result of their time on the trail with us, people gain competency in the wilderness and confidence in themselves.
