Very few outdoor schools offer you the honest experience of living what they teach. The Desert Drifter is our "toughest" course. It is no ordinary outdoor experience and is designed to strip you of everything you thought you needed in the wilderness. It is a course structured to challenge and quickly wear away self-imposed limitations while imparting gifts such as confidence, improvisation and gratitude.

Your trek begins with a map, water bottles and the clothes on your back. Like the ancient tribes before us, we’ll travel as a hunter - gatherer band through stunning Arizona wilderness relying on each other, what nature provides and little else. The focus of this journey is the journey itself. The skills covered will be those directly related to our survival such as finding water, fire, shelter, and food. Adaptation, attitude and awareness will become your constant companions on this uniquely raw, cross-country adventure, the motto for the Drifter experience simply being “whatever works.” (Warning! Aggressive cross-country hiking is required)
