Stranded on a remote country road. Falling through thin ice while ice fishing. Lost and disoriented during a weekend hunting trip. Winter in Minnesota can be fun and exciting, but it can turn into an emergency very quickly. Every year over 1,200 people die from cold-related injuries. Don’t be a statistic! Through hands-on teaching by an experienced outdoor instructor, participants will learn basic survival strategies, including: emergency shelter-building, fire skills, selecting the best clothing and equipment, how to build an emergency survival kit, and first aid treatment for cold-weather injuries. Have fun, gain important knowledge and skills, and be prepared for the next “Polar Vortex”. Note: This class will be outside between 2-3 hours.

Instructor: Brent Anderson has led backpacking trips in Australia, Central America and Africa, and mountaineering/backcountry tours in the Santa Monica and Northern Sierra mountains. In addition to being a certified Wilderness First Responder, EMT, and First Aid Instructor, he is also an avid travel and outdoors enthusiast and is always looking for the next great adventure!
