The Everglades of Florida offer up some interesting possibilities for outdoor experiences.
The best time for camping in the Everglades of course is fall and winter, however some people want to camp in the summertime, which presents a few challenges of its own in the Everglades region of Florida.
Camping in the Everglades is a challenge at any time, but is well worth your time to undertake the trip planning. During the summer time, Everglades National Park might get up to about eighty percent of the rainfall that they get for the entire year. What that means to you is that thunder and lighting can move in quite rapidly and you need to be prepared.
You will, in the course of your trip come across and may have some interaction with wildlife.
Additionally there are more than forty kinds of mammals that live their lives out in the Everglades, and make up a great deal of the attractions of Everglades National Park.
The Everglades is no place to be without a camera.
As you traverse the waterways and hiking paths, pay close attention to the plant life as well. You will find orchids that grow no where else on earth, many of them growing on host trees as they have adapted to the environment and live now in this fashion.
Birds are extraordinarily prolific here in the Everglades.The incredible flamingo, to the loon , the booby, the pelican and the magnificent snowy egret all make their home and quite often their nest in the Everglades.
Camping in the Everglades is of course going to require a boat trip of some type. There are many boat rental places in the Everglades, so arranging to rent one isn’t going to be difficult and can be done in advance or the day of your arrival.
Boating the Everglades however isn’t as simple as just renting a boat and moving out. This type of boating will be different from nearly any other place you’re ever going to boat, or have boated in the past.
Navigation in the Everglades isn’t always as simple and straight forward as it seems, and the passageways can begin to look the same after a time. Lined as they all are with the mangroves and hanging plants, they can, after a time begin to...

The survival standard is our most popular course and it teaches people who are new to the survival community the most important basic skills in a wilderness survival situation. Shelter, Water, Fire, Food, Tools, & Navigation! Let me be clear that our survival courses are not designed to teach you how to get out of the woods, but how to live in them. If you can live in the woods then you have no fear of getting lost in them. This is the first of 3 wilderness survival standard courses that will slowly transition you from doing skills in isolation in our camp, to a full blown expert survivalist that is capable of living completely off the land. The survival standard is very comprehensive and covers a multitude of different subjects about wilderness survival with and without modern equipment. This class is very intensive and is almost entirely hands on with very little lecture time. Most of the five days will actually be spent doing physical work and you will practice building and using all the skills/items listed below. This course is the first step in learning how to be completely self reliant in the wilderness and by completing our entire wilderness survival standard program you will quickly become a completely self reliant survival expert!

The advanced standard course takes the skills from the Basic Standard Course and builds on them to enable the survivor to have more skill sets in order to increase their bushcraft comfort and understanding. This is the second class in the Wilderness Survival Certification Series and is a difficult class in itself because of the demands put on the student. The course is 100% taught in the field with hands on training and there is no class room lecture time at all! This course is a transition course that will begin to test your survival skills and take your basic skill sets to a whole other level. The purpose of the wilderness survival standard courses is to slowly transition you into being able to live completely off the land and this will be the first taste of actually putting these skills you’ve learned to the test in a real survival scenario. ATTENTION: You do not have to take our basic course to attend the Advanced Standard!
