Women's Survival Course

"In a survival situation women are more likely and are expected to defer to men - reasoning that they 'naturally know what to do', even if the men in the situation have never received survival training! Don't let this happen to you."

This women's survival course is specifically designed for women of all ages to share and grow in a safe environment. To enable women to become fully qualified in bush survival skills without relying on or the restriction or support from partners with discussions and physical skills.

This sanctions and empowers them to have an effective and positive impact with their ability to contribute with confidence in the decision making in a real crisis situation.

Survival situations cannot be anticipated, they just happen and if the person in charge - is you - could you cope?

Friday, 3 November 2017: Women's Survival Course - $650.00

Duration: 3 days.

Basic survival knowledge importantly improves the preparation for any excursion in the right selection of precautionary gear to take in case things don't go according to "Plan A" in outings from half day walks to expeditions and a "Plan B" has to be formulated.

You will have two nights camping at Lake Leschenaultia & two full days of practical and theoretical instruction in the bush with Bob Cooper, Ann Gerlach, and Vanessa Paget with a campfire classroom set up for the hands-on learning of survival skills and knowledge.

"Many irrational fears overshadow people's engagement with our wilderness, even in the bushlands of the metro area; knowledge replace that fear with respect for nature.

We need to recapture this realisation and compassion with nature which our fore-fathers and mothers instinctively knew. Our true appreciation and understanding of our natural environment may be the prime factor that preserves it, and, on occasions safeguards us and our families. This course is my contribution to this necessary new appreciation and awareness." Bob Cooper
