Step into nature, develop deeper levels of self-confidence and awareness with our adult Fox Walkers program. During a session at Fox Walkers, participants will learn about the Sacred Order of Survival, the basic skills necessary to create a comfortable home in nature.

Through the skills of awareness, tracking, shelter, water, fire and food, we can discover and rekindle our true connection with the Earth. In that relationship, 'survival' becomes a dirty word, because there is no need to 'survive' our Earth Mother. Weekly classes will present ancient human skills through hands-on experiences, stories and games. Each day of class will be dictated by the environment and the story of the day.

Core skills include:
- debris shelter building
- finding and purifying water
- fire by friction
- hunting/trapping
- edible/ medicinal plants
- tracking
- cordage making
- stone tools
...and so much more.

This class is sure to be EPIC. See you there!
