Ancestral Skills Campouts

Have you ever wanted to sleep in a shelter made only from natural materials?

Would you like to learn how to cook a full meal over a campfire, without using a pot, pan, or grill?

All of us are descended from ancestors who lived close to the earth, not just “surviving” but living with confidence in different environments using skills passed on from one generation to another for thousands of years. When we go into a wild place with the goal of living there, rather than escaping to find our way back to civilization, this changes the way we interact with the land, the plants, the animals, the people we are with, and the situations we encounter.
