Apologia Wilderness School Survival Course
Fri, 13 Nov 2015 09:00:00 +0000
Level 2: Survival – Preparing for Spiritual Impact (Bushcraft is a prerequisit to this course) 18 and older 9:00 a.m on Friday - 3:00 p.m. on Sunday One of the big disconnects in today’s church culture involves the failure to translate personal spiritual growth into building intentional relationships for the purpose of investing spiritually in others. Body life is suffering immensely from this critical breakdown. While many experts tag this issue as an outcome of self-focused culture, we believe it is a direct result of the lack of discipleship. Building on Level 1, the content invests into building intentional spiritual relationships, helping people see what’s true and helping them do something about it. We do not exist for our own pleasure and pursuit. God created us for relationships and community. This critical level equips you with first steps toward strong influence. Your outcome: Practical skills to have more meaningful conversations and deeper relationships to help others. Bible Training •How God Grows You. We will study sanctification and James 1:2. •Principle-Driven Decision Making (Developing daily goals, Spiritual Growth Plans, and Ministry Strategy). A Biblical leader understands the importance of establishing goals that are based on the Word of God and bathed in prayer. •How to Inspect Fruit. A key quality of a leader is bing able to see areas of growth in the audience. Inspiring growth without damaging the fruit is vital in the art of making disciples. •Bible Study Methods 1. There is always room to improve how we read and interpret Scripture. We will walk you through steps that will help you become a better student of the Word. You have been on a backpacking trip for the last few days. You are tired, hungry, and ready to get home. Somehow your group finds themselves in a desperate situation. They only you have left is the emergency food left in your pack. This is the overall scenario we follow for the 48 hour survival course. One of the best learning tools is to place yourself in a controlled, yet challenging situation. That is our goal. The scenarios and the teaching of skills are designed to give you the confidence and mental strength to travel God’s creation with ease, so that you will be able to teach others. We teach a mixture of both modern and primitive wilderness skills, along with in depth Bible study sessions. What about my physical condition? Most of Apologia Outdoors' trips, including our survival course, are physically demanding simply due to the nature of our ministry. We do not require anyone to be physically fit, but we do recommend it. Below is a synopsis of what will be covered. Yukon Packs: All equipment will be carried into the woods with a Yukon Pack. We will walk you through the process of making your pack, and how to carry it. Shelter: In cold and wet weather, a good shelter is of the utmost importance. Everyone will be staying in a shelter that they built. We will provide each student a piece of durable plastic sheeting to help with the construction (the sheeting will also make the outside of your Yukon Pack). We will assist you in choosing a proper site and design. We will also show you a shelter design that you will be able to set up very quickly. Fire Craft: Fire is very important in signaling for help, warmth, cooking, and drying off clothes. We will instruct and guide you through on how to start a fire without matches using both man-made and natural elements. You will be able to light a fire in all conditions, and keep the fire going during the night? Water: Dehydration is real, and its effects can be seen very easily. We will show you how to gather and purify water to prevent dehydration. In different environments you need varying amounts of water to remain well-hydrated. In some environments water can be hard to find and you need to know where to look. Even when you do find water, more than two-thirds of the world’s fresh water is unsafe to drink. The course provides in-depth knowledge of what the problems are and how to avoid them, with failsafe protocols for water purification anywhere in the world. These will be applied on the course repeatedly so that you know them inside-out. Orienteering: Using both primitive and more modern devices, we will teach you how to find your way to safety. We will show you how to use creation to find direction. Signaling: Signaling is important in a survival situation. We will show different techniques to help get the attention of the rescuers. How do you signal over water? Are there different signals for day time than night time? Traps and Snares: If we are to rely on nature for sustenance, then in addition to knowing where animals may be active, we also need to know how to catch them effectively. We cover legal (UK) methods of trapping as well as traditional methods of trapping that should only be applied in a survival situation or in territories where they are legal. Studying traps is interesting even for those who have no interest in catching animals. Many of the trigger mechanisms are ingenious and they give an insight to the inventiveness of our forebears. Small Game Preparation: If we obtain small game, then we need to know how to prepare it. Many people these days have very little idea of how to butcher even a small animal, let alone a larger one. Even though larger animals can feed many people for days, you will most regularly be preparing small game. We show you quick and easy methods of making the most of the meat from a small mammal. The Mental Factor At least 75% of surviving in the wilderness is mental. Learning how to make wise decisions in tough situations is important in the wilderness and life in general. Adjusting your mindset to doing without the comforts of life can be stressful. Your body will be tested in many ways. The instructors are there to help you learn skills, but also think through the best course of action. What To Bring: 1Appropriate clothing 2Sleeping Bag (can be rented for $10.00) 3Journal (if it is not water proof, then make sure it is in a bag) 42 Water Bottles: At least of these needs to be a stainless steel 32 oz. water bottle (non-insulated) 5Fixed blade knife 6some kind of flint and steel device 6Pencil 7Flashlight 8Toilet paper 9Small duffle bag 10Hand sanitizer 11Large heavy duty trash bag 12Empty Altoids can or similar container 13Bible 14Pen 15Journal What NOT To Bring Cell Water filters of any kind Snacks of any kind Cell Phones (We allow phones for cameras.
