Interested in a life-changing challenge? Feel like seeing the world differently?
Our survival instructors are some of the most experienced and competent in the world. The challenges that our BOSS survival courses offer aren’t for everyone, but if you’re the right person and it’s the right time for you, we promise our survival classes will provide adventure, challenge and world-class instruction.
A BOSS Field Course is for those seeking to push themselves, to receive skills instruction by master instructors, and for an opportunity to reconnect with the natural world. No previous outdoor skills or knowledge is needed.
BOSS Skills Courses are held in some of our favorite camps on the public lands surrounding our campus in Boulder, and these survival courses include day and sometimes overnight trips into nearby areas for gathering materials. Some of BOSS’s most skilled instructors will teach you primitive survival and traditional living skills like friction fire, shelter construction, cordage, edible plants, primitive pottery, and flintknapping. Instruction is hands-on and class sizes are small to ensure each student has ample access to our instructors. These courses are less physically challenging than a field course, and are more focused on practicing skills and living as a primitive village. You will leave these courses with your arms full of the products of your labor.
A skills course is for those seeking focused, hands-on time to build their primitive, traditional, and bushcraft skills in a wilderness basecamp setting. No previous outdoor skills or knowledge are needed.
