Tap into Your Inner Survivor Man at Simpsonville Survival School

Have you ever wanted to learn how to survive out in the wild without any gear or supplies? Want to tap into your inner survival instincts? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should look into taking a class at Trail Blazer Survival in Simpsonville. This place offers courses that are as extensive or as simple as you want, or you can send your preteens to one of their interactive and educational summer camps.

Essential Wilderness Survival

You can pick from three different multi-day courses to brush up on your outdoor skills. One such course is the Essential Wilderness Survival course. This class is all about the general skills needed to survive out in the wild on your own. Students spend two days camping out and learning all about surviving in an emergency situation from expert instructors. An optional third day is available if you decide to stick around and enjoy the camp without a training session.

Applied Wilderness Survival

This training session is much more expansive and encompasses four days of learning survival skills for any and all outdoor situations. Instructors will take students through interactive training for real-life outdoor scenarios. You can learn how to build your own shelter, find a clean water source, and even make a fire for cooking and warmth.

Advanced Wilderness Survival 

Whereas the other two classes are for situations that arise without much foresight, this session fully prepares students for long-term survival in the great outdoors with nothing but the skills they learned. Beyond simply learning survival essentials, you will become completely self-reliant while out in nature. This is the perfect training course if you are planning to take a long trip in the wild.

Summer Camps

Trail Blazer Survival offers experiences for kids ages 10-14 as well. Each of the camps run for 5 days from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can choose from 7 unique camp experiences depending on the skills you want your preteen to learn. These camps include activities such as learning archery, primitive camping, and trail blazing, among many other cool skills. Give your kid a summer he or she will never forget and register them for one of these fun and informative survival camps.
