The wilderness is challenging, unforgiving, and has many dangers. By combining ancient wisdom with modern knowledge, we have the means of venturing out into nature prepared to enjoy the bounties it has to offer. No matter the weather conditions or terrain, we prepare our students to enter into a wonderful and foreboding place fully prepared to make their way successfully in harmony with their surroundings. Welcome to Camp-Lore.
ADEPT KNOWLEDGE - REFINED SKILLS - DETAILED CRAFT
The desire to be close to the wilderness is in our DNA. It doesn’t matter what our background is, we all have a genetic past that is linked to being close to wild places. Through time, many have lost that part of their past, but we can bring it back.
Camp-Lore: (n) Spending time enjoying, and using the many resources found in the wilderness to thrive. The practice refers to knowledge, craft, and specific gear used in what we call “close wilderness camping.”.
Our Camp-Lore Courses offer just that, the opportunity to learn what it takes to be as close to the wild as our ancestors were. Our instructors take pride in teaching skills and traditions that have been used throughout history to make living in the woods not only possible, but enjoyable. Embracing those traditions and practicing those skills can make one adept at wilderness living.
