What Gear do I need to bring?
We suggest that you come dressed to spend a day outdoors where weather can change. Pants or shorts are fine, but keep in mind that different activities will have you kneeling and sitting on the ground. We ask that you wear close-toed shoes like tennis shoes. Courses happen rain or shine.

It is also a good idea to pack some food/snacks + bottles of drinking water, and a camp chair for sitting outdoors. While mosquito activity is generally very light, feel free to bring bug repellent as well. We’ll provide all the other class gear needed for your survival adventure!

Are Pets Allowed?
Sorry, no pets are allowed on these training adventures.
