Imagine harvesting your own coconuts on the beach, roasting them on a friction-fire you made from rubbing bamboo together, relaxing under the stars while listening to the ocean in your handmade shelter, constructed from palm-fronds and grasses. Come spend 8 days with us as we have a true adventure. The first few days will be spent with expert instructors, catching you up to speed learning about shelters, numerous friction fire techniques, traps, water purification, net weaving, spear fishing, pottery, basket weaving and edible/medicinal plants of the islands. Then, as a group, we take off for our remote location for 4 days, testing ourselves, and our skills....in paradise. This is a truly one of a kind adventure!!
Fly into Fredricksted, St Croix. We will meet and begin the class at Mt Victory Camp where you may camp (included) or rent a bungalow. We will begin by preparing ourselves for the excursion for the first 3.5 days and then head out and spend the next four days living in full survival-- with a knife as our only modern tool. Class will end before noon on the 16th to ensure everyone enough time to make their flights.
Cost (airfare not included): $980
