Full description

Discover the world of survival with a two-day course designed for those who want to approach this world accompanied by expert instructors in the province of Turin.

Describing in a few lines what a survival course is, what to expect and above all why to participate, is not an easy thing to do. Survival or survival is "the art" of staying alive despite everything; very often it is not an easy undertaking, but one must rely on one's will and ability to adapt, two elements that together we call RESILIENCE.

The survivalist MUST be a resilient person, able to absorb a shock without breaking down, able to cope positively with traumatic events, to reorganise one's life positively in the face of difficulties, to rebuild oneself while remaining sensitive to the positive opportunities that life offers, without alienating one's identity.

Our survival courses in the province of Turin are suitable for everyone, because everyone must have the opportunity to learn the techniques and correct mental attitude to be able to survive.

Our learning programmes have been tested over 16 years of adventures not only in Italy but also abroad, in wild environments. Our goal as an ACADEMY is to train resilient people through specific courses and activities.

Attention!

We do not train super men or super women but people who are able to cope in a positive manner with those shocks that life sometimes presents, whether whether in the wilderness or in an asphalt jungle.

What we will do

The Survival Basic Course is the first step on the path to learning survival techniques.

In this course you will learn the meaning of the words will and instinct. There will be no defined time frames, but everything will be done according to the objective priorities that occur in a real survival situation.

No topics or techniques for long-term survival will be covered, but we will deal with the point of view of the missing person who must return home or be rescued within 48 hours.

Again under the guidance of CSEN-certified National Survival Instructors, we will learn where, how and when to build an emergency shelter using the little material available; how to light an emergency fire; how to search for and drink water; how to orient oneself without the use of GPS, report one's position and get rescued.

In addition to the technical aspects, elements of survival psychology, resilience and emergency management will be addressed.
