Survival School

Over the last 200 years, the primitive skills man developed and honed for thoursands of years have been almost lost due to mass production and technological advancements.  Since November of 2015 Trail Blazer Survival School has been offering survival skill courses to keep these primitive skills alive. Our mission is to continue passing these skills on to each new generation.

Trail Blazer Survival School provides primitive skills training in an affordable format that extends an opportunity for all to learn these skills.  No matter what your reason – preparing  for disaster, society collapse, being lost in the woods, or merely to re-bond with your roots – you can develop a “tool chest” of skills that will give you the ability to survive as our ancestors did.
