«COURSE OBJECTIVE — CHARACTER TOUGHENING,

SO NO «VANILLA» WHATSOEVER.»


10-DAY PROGRAM

 

Do you want to gain new knowledge and skills?

Do you want to test yourself in the wild conditions?

Do you want to find true friends for life?

Then this session is for you!

Course Program:

Every day, we communicate, interact, compete, and acquire new knowledge and skills.

Each evening, we discuss the day, and if necessary, we can adjust it based on preferences and conditions.

On the first day, there’s a transfer to the survival school location. Upon arrival, a comprehensive safety briefing and theoretical foundation on wilderness survival are provided. Inspection of all backpacks, camp setup, a mountain hike, and overnight camping in tents.

On the second day and subsequent days, there’s a morning workout for spirit invigoration and body conditioning. We learn to build a camp in case there are no tents, how to make a fire without matches, lighters, and flint — using ancient fire-making methods. Overnight stay in the constructed camp.

The third day involves packing up the camp, and we embark on an extended hike for several days, exploring the most beautiful places in Montenegro. During this time, we practice and reinforce survival skills from the program through practical application. Continuous learning of wilderness survival skills, all under close observation and video recording for future editing.

There will definitely be a night hike to understand and acquire nighttime life skills.

One day will be dedicated to rock climbing with licensed guides, where all participants will gain skills and an unforgettable experience.

If desired, canyonning can be organized (paid separately)

The survival course program is meticulously crafted and fine-tuned to the smallest details. However, each session is unique.

An individual approach to each participant and unobtrusive, competent monitoring of the proceedings are the keys to participants becoming wiser, calmer, and more confident in themselves and their abilities upon completing the program.

Being in the wilderness, the absence of gadgets, and breaking away from familiar behavioral patterns is akin to being stranded on a deserted island. The only difference is that here, everything is under the strict yet unobtrusive control of the instructor. The use of phones is allowed only in the evening for communication with relatives, provided that all tasks assigned to the teams are completed.

The master classes follow a clear scheme: explanation — demonstration — practice. This approach was ingrained in us both at the military academy and the pedagogical university, and it has proven itself effectively.

During the program, participants find like-minded individuals, improve their physical fitness, explore their maximum capabilities in unfamiliar situations. By discovering new knowledge, overcoming laziness and fears, participants gain confidence, undergo character development, and forge lifelong friendships.

The program includes lessons on first aid:

  • Order of providing first aid
  • Rules for dealing with burns and other effects of high and low temperatures
  • First aid for poisoning, sunstroke
  • Types of fractures and dislocations
  • What to do in case of insect bites or snake bites
  • Providing psychological support to the injured

Also included in the program are sessions:

  • Construction of various types of fires: pyramid, well, Finnish candle, taiga, including the Dakota fire pit — one of the oldest fire pits in the world.
  • Building a shelter in the forest and overnight stay in it.
  • Knife sharpening.
  • Each session will have its own unique elements. Land navigation, map reading, tracking wild animal prints — these are just a part of the knowledge that the instructor imparts to the participants.

Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a personalized token and a fire starter as a gift.
To create the token, please provide the necessary information at least 15 days in advance.

CAMP LIFE

All participants live in 2 or 3-person tents or in mountain cabins in Eco-settlements, depending on weather conditions. Each participant sleeps on a sleeping mat (camping foam) and in a sleeping bag provided or brought by them.

Participants cook their own meals either on a campfire or a portable stove. The food is simple but nutritious – soups, whole-grain pasta with meat or vegetables, buckwheat, various cereals. Occasionally, we purchase fresh vegetables and fruits. We drink tea made from real mountain herbs that we gather ourselves!

Participants take showers with hot water, and for hardening, they bathe in mountain rivers. The program also includes laundry days, where participants learn to wash their clothes by hand with soap.

Camp behavior rules: adhere to safety regulations, follow the instructor’s instructions, report any health issues, maintain personal hygiene, take care of belongings, do not leave the camp without permission, and avoid the use of inappropriate language.
