    Default Anyone know of wilderness survival courses in MA?

    I've been wanting to take a wilderness survival course, but havent found too many offered from searching online. Have any of you taken a course that you could recommend. Preferably in MA or New England. If you have taken a course what sort of things were covered?

    A friend of mine offers such a course. Frank has studied with Tom Brown, and he's top notch.

    Also, give these guys a call:

    I did my Wilderness First Responder course with them many many moons ago. Not a 'survival' course per-se, but very comprehensive wilderness medicine course. Perhaps they have suggestions to do more.
    A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
    Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
    A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
    Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
    A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
    and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
    I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
    if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

    AMC offers some wilderness first aid courses and probably survival classes as well. Safety trainers in auburn MA has a quick wilderness first aid course if you are interested as well.

    Thank goofycj7, i'll check that out as well.

    jmjkd- I want to get more into hiking this summer, so I'd like to learn basic survival skills, like building shelter, orienteering, first aid, etc. Information that would be useful for camping/ hiking.
