Channel your inner pioneer
Learn survival skills on the Montana frontier
Leave the city behind and get in touch with your inner frontiersman or woman. The Ranch’s own advanced EMTs and trained outdoorsmen and women teach the basic skills required to survive overnight in the wilderness. Meet at a mountainside location for a morning or afternoon of fun and enlightening instruction and frontier challenges. After reviewing first aid and survival gear essentials, individuals or groups will be tasked with making their own shelter. Then, you’ll learn to locate safe water sources and how to set a snare for trapping small animals. Lastly, you will be taught to start a fire using several different methods. When you depart The Ranch, you’ll feel more comfortable and confident exploring farther afield on your future travels.
