“I love teaching all the courses but this (Advanced Survival and Field Exercise Course) ┬áhas to be my favorite. In this course, students really transition into independent outdoorsmen and women. You see students substituting skills for gear and watch as previously learned skills are improved even more. We have a lot of fun, experience the outdoors together and build great friendships while enduring whatever mother nature throws at us.” -Kevin Estela
