“This program is no ordinary wilderness experience!”
Mountain Living magazine
“It’s a chance to learn the art of primitive living.”

“Cody Lundin’s Aboriginal Living Skills School offers opportunities to shed your outer city trappings, and get in touch with your inner wildman.”
The Prescott Courier
Most Skills Courses involve short, cross-country hikes to primitive base camps. While reasonable physical fitness is recommended, stamina requirements for a Skills Course are much less than for an Adventure Course. The focus of a Skills Course is to experience hands-on aspects of primitive and modern technology within a beautiful, wilderness classroom setting. Skills Courses involve basic overnight camping with some modern gear.
Although packed with the same hands-on fun, lecture and demonstration as our Skills Courses, Adventure Courses are more physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. Your experiences may include increased time in the field, longer cross-country treks, limited modern gear and the realities of hunting and gathering for your dinner. While we’ve had people who were overweight to those in their 70s successfully complete Adventure Courses, reasonable physical fitness is strongly recommended. Call us if you have questions regarding your participation.
