The Woodsrunner School of Self-Reliance is a professional outdoor educational establishment offering the most comprehensive range of outdoor skills, specializing in survival, traditional skills, camp-lore, and covering everything from foundational principles through advanced skills. Our school is available to anyone with the desire to become self-reliant. We provide a direct learning experience using verbal, visual, and tactile learning styles. The Woodsrunner School guides individuals through their path to self-reliance.




Our students, past and present respect us for the immense amount of time our instructors put into quality, value building experiences using structured teaching methods. Our instructors’ backgrounds stem from decades of combined training and experience in the military, law enforcement, and medical careers, as well as their countless hours spent in the wilderness. The conditions our instructors have endured in hands-on training, or what we call “dirt-time,” have been purposefully less than hospitable, forcing them to adapt and overcome any situation or adversity.


Our knowledge and experience in many environments and situations help us continue with our training and allow us to instruct using the best techniques for the highest percentage of success. We have assembled a team of experienced, enthusiastic, and friendly instructors prepared to teach a wide variety of fun and informative courses and combined up to date training and knowledge when writing our curriculum.


Our school is a comfortable, fun, and exciting environment in which to learn, no matter your skill level. It is through the dedication of our instructors and staff that we strive to make the experiences at The Woodsrunner School full of once-in-a-lifetime memories. It is our alumni coming back to us, time and again, to continue on their path to self-reliance that is the proof of our authentic stake in making all those we encounter better at adapting to their circumstances, however wild they may be.


We welcome the opportunity to earn our students trust, and cannot wait to meet you at our next class!
