The Scout Survival program is the culmination of everything we have taught you from the beginning of the survival standards program. The basis of this course is putting the skills you learned to use in a field test, under the guidance and supervision of SIGMA 3 instructors. You will be completely alone in your own survival area, but still under the safe watch of our team. This is the best way to truly put your survival skills to the test in the field and see if you have truly mastered them like you think you have. While this course is a solo test, you’ll have access to instructors to ask question of as you go. We want you to learn, not just struggle. Stress inoculation is key to seeing where your skills are really at! If you can survive this class, you can survive short to long term almost anywhere else also.

THE MOST HARDCORE WILDERNESS SURVIVAL COURSE WE OFFER!

You will start with a knife only. You will have several primitive skills missions you will have to complete before you can attain any other tools. The reasoning behind this methodology is to show the student that they can survive with a knife only. But once they have demonstrated those skills, then they can gain other useful survival tools to show that survival can be a breeze with the right kit. But you won’t get any of that survival kit, until you demonstrate your primitive skills first.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

This Scout Survival course will push you to your limits! You will be tired, cold, hungry, and yet you will be wanting more of it by the time the course is over. This course is adored by students and even though it is very difficult, it is so satisfying to achieve completion and graduation of it. SIGMA 3 instructors will be there with you to insure you succeed.

This page doesn’t have the full write up on what to expect for the course. This is the checkout, visit the scout survival class page for more info.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call us, the number is listed below. We look forward to training with you and getting dirt time!

The Primitive bowyer course is our PREMIER archery course and this course will teach you how to build a bow for long term survival skills.

You will literally transform a tree into a beautiful and functional tool that will give you a lifetime of enjoyment!

FROM A TREE TO A FUNCTIONAL KILLING TOOL IN 3 DAYS!

The Primitive Bowyer course will take place over 3 days and from the first morning you will begin roughing out your stave and getting it to its rough dimensions. The second day you will begin tillering and on the final day you will finish out the longbow. We will also cover how to make arrows, sealing, string construction and much more! All the basic skills of survival archery will be covered in this class and you will be able to walk away with a complete archery kit that you made yourself.

Locals can now take advantage of their close proximity to the school, by utilizing their free weekends for training.
