Each year more than 2,000 people become lost during wilderness hikes. In these situations, knowing what to do and what not to do can make the difference between life and death. ODR is teaming up with Survival Training School of California to bring you an intensive two day course in Big Bear that will teach you critical life saving techniques. Tents are permitted, but students will also have the option to sleep in actual survival shelters that they make themselves with materials gathered from the local environment. Skills that will be developed include recognizing and treating hypothermia, how to make a friction fire, how to construct a weatherproof survival shelter, essential first aid, small game trapping, water collection and purification with limited resources, rescue signaling techniques, how to react to dangerous wildlife, and much more.

Transportation from El Segundo and Fort Mac will be provided.
