Top 10 Survival School

Top 10 Survival School

True North is extremely pleased to announce that we have been included as one of the top ten wilderness survival schools featured in the Spring 2016 issue of Survivor’s Edge.

As outlined in its article, Masters of Survival, the folks at Survivor’s Edge write, “Here are ten well highly regarded schools that will teach you what you need to know to survive and live off of the land.”

Survivors EdgeWe’re not exactly sure if we are comfortable being described, even indirectly, as a “master” since it’s extremely humbling to see our name alongside so many other nationally known and well respected survival schools from all around the United States in their list.  Still, if this attention in any way reflects how hard we continue to work to provide you the finest training in wilderness survival, emergency medicine, and land navigation so that you are best prepared to protect yourself, and others, in an emergency anywhere, anytime, then that’s fine with us.

After all, our mission remains focused on helping you to explore, help, and lead confidently.

And a special thanks to Abie Livesay of Boxwood Photography for taking this photograph.  Whether in the woods or at a wedding, you’ll be glad that Abie is behind the camera!
