This all-ages 1-day class will give you some introductory knowledge on survival philosophy, skills, and gear. This course is for those who are just beginning their survival journey but don’t know where to start, those with younger children with an interest in the outdoors, or those who just want to have a fun day learning something new. We will go over the essentials in a more abbreviated, family friendly way than our 2- or 3- day survival courses with some fun demonstrations and hands-on activities throughout.

Important Course Information (Please Read)

ARTOS all-ages Introduction to Wilderness Emergency Survival 1-day courses are open to the public and are held at a beautiful 250-acre camp on the shores of Flathead Lake in Lakeside, MT, just south of Kalispell, MT.

This is an all-ages course, not a children’s course. Minors must be accompanied by an also enrolled parent/guardian. ALL PRESENT MUST BE ENROLLED!

The course will run the whole day, about 8 hours, with a lunch break in the middle. Class starts at 0900.

The next tab lists the gear requirements for the course, which are not a lot. We encourage you to use what you already have so you have less to purchase. We will provide the rest.

After your order is processed, an orientation package with further information, including exact location, start time, what to expect, etc. will be sent via email.

Instructors are trained and certified in emergency medicine and will carry first aid equipment, emergency signaling devices, and defensive measures for dangerous wildlife throughout the course.

A complete refund can be issued for any cancellation more than 21 days before the date of the course. For any cancellation within 21 days of the date of the course, a credit will be issued and honored for any open course of equal value.

In the event that ARTOS Survival must cancel a course due to unforeseen circumstances, students will be given notice as soon as possible and given the option to either reschedule to a later scheduled course of equal value, to be notified when a new course date for the enrolled course is scheduled, or to receive a full refund. If flying in or scheduling lodging or vehicle rentals for your trip, please choose refundable options or purchase travel insurance in the event that this does happen.

    Great begginers class! We took our 6 yr. old son and he loved it! Patrick was very personable and fun, making it a comfortable learning environment which we appreciate so much. Thank you ARTOS!
