Who exactly goes to “survival school?” Normal people? The kind of people you’d want to hang out with? Well, if you’re anything like our alumni, you’ll be happy to know that the people who go to BOSS are normal, healthy people looking for an adventurous experience and you’ll probably fit right in.
BOSS students come from all walks of life. Over the past 40 years, we’ve had everything from idealistic students to powerful moguls to Hollywood celebrities on the trail with us. We’ve had doctors and nurses, engineers and mechanics, firemen and policemen, attorneys and judges…. the list goes on and on. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that BOSS does not attract a demographic as much as a psychographic. The people who choose to go to BOSS are adventurous, open-minded, and inquisitive. They appreciate the wilderness and are hopeful to learn an ancient way of walking in it. They aren’t afraid of being pushed out of their comfort zone (on some courses) and they’re willing to explore — both the wilderness and themselves.
