College-Accredited Bushcraft, Wilderness Survival & Professional Outdoor Guide Training Programs

Learn To Survive In The Wilderness And Become A Professional Guide While Earning College Credit. Residential Semester Courses, Canoe & Snowshoe Expeditions & Cross-Cultural Experiences On The Land With Native Cultures

You can take a semester in the forest learning bushcraft and earn credits toward your degree. Now in it’s 20th year, the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School offers programs for gap year and college students in bushcraft, professional outdoor guide training, expedition leadership and outdoor skills, as well as cross cultural trips with native people of the far north.

Outdoor education at the university level has grown homogenous over the past 50 years. The influence of ultralight backpacking and mountaineering is strong, but that is only one small part of outdoor learning. 

The programs featured here draw on the subsistence lifestyles used by native people to live on the land for thousands of years instead of modern, high-tech backpacking and mountaineering.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
