Final Bushcraft Semester Course This Fall

After a lot of thought, I’ve decided that this fall will be our last fall semester for a few years.  While they’ve been very successful and have been a life-changing experience for our students, they are also a difficult period of separation for my family.  While this has been challenging for my wife and I in the past, it’s now challenging for my 2 children as well.  As a father, I’ve decided that being away from home for extended lengths of time isn’t the best thing for them.  It’s time to retire the semester programs for a while and stay closer to home, or at least to be gone for shorter periods of time until my kids are older.

So if you’ve been thinking about taking a long-term course with us, this will be your last chance for a few years.  We’ll continue to run weeklong programs and some multi-week summer programs, but not our full semester immersion programs.

Registration for the yearlong program and the fall wilderness bushcraft semester is open until June 1st.

    So I am unavailable for attendance until mid september, if not later… I have been an avid proponent for your school, and looking to become a part of it for a few years now. What do you suggest, as I see the opportunity of this course to be invaluable.

  • great post as usual!

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
