I came to BOSS Because…I came to BOSS because I wanted to reconnect with the natural world and myself. I desired to deepen my knowledge of primitive skills and outdoor survival, encounter a true physical challenge and experience freedom from the things most people consider to be “necessities.”
I Teach at BOSS Because…I teach at BOSS for many reasons. Over a decade ago, I began to network at the best place I knew for a true outdoor education. I believe in the exchange of education through sharing knowledge with those interested in this field and with a greater community outside of those already interested in primitive skills and outdoor survival. I love the exchange I get to have with my students. I love to see the change in people in both skill-set and mindset after spending time “roughing it” in, what I consider to be, one of the most beautiful places on earth. It’s inspiring.
