Wilderness Survival Camp



More Details

Learn how to survive in the wild with guest presenter Mike Lowe and other trainers.

We'll be covering three levels of training of which you sign up for only one. We will also have classes for children

  • Level 1 which trains beginners or campers and equips them to be backpackers.
  • Level 2 teaches the basics survival skills. You have to be a backpacker to do this level.
  • Level 3 teaches intermediate survival skills. You have to be proficient at level 2 in order to take part in level 3.



The camp will take place at Pine Lake Retreat, 21725 County Road 33, Groveland, FL 34736.

Level 1 and the children will be in the camping area.  They can camp or use independently rented housing from Pine Lake.
