The Conservation College Wilderness Survival & Traditional Technologies instructors training internship position is an exclusive summer focus of our Earth Skills Apprenticeship with only two positions available. FAQ – How is the Conservation College Earth Skills Apprenticeship the Ultimate Summer Internship? We offer our Earth Skills Apprenticeship with a choice of five focus options where you can build wilderness skills quicker than anywhere else. Each week of the summer is an intensive training on a different aspect of wilderness survival, wild edible and medicinal plant crafting, ethnobotany, wildlife tracking, ancient scouting skills, hunting and fishing, plus traditional crafts like hide tanning, bow and arrow making, flintknapping, and more.
Our two Traditional Technology & Survival Instructor training positions are available for those who want to move beyond a general overview of the skills we teach, and to challenge themselves with skills like navigation and orienteering, fire and shelter, wild edible foods foraging, and traditional craftwork such as tanning hides for leather, making bows and fishing gear for the fall harvest, working with stone to make knives and arrowheads, and practicing survival scenarios in case of emergency or catastrophe. By the time you are done with this course, you will know how to harvest plants, animals and minerals with confidence about how to honor their gifts.  You will never waste resources again, while becoming a utilitarian artist, and a person people will look to in times of need. 3) experienced teachers of other subject matters become versed in survival in a familiar fast-paced educational setting. No matter your previous experience, you will be expected to fully participate in every possible training opportunity to push your skills to a higher level of excellence, although your own health will be the priority while developing into a better and healthier instructor. Benefits of this program include eligibility for employment at Wolf Camp, strong recommendations for employment elsewhere, and advice for starting your own guiding programs. Beyond tuition and health insurance, you need not spend a dime all summer, as all additional expenses are covered with work trade. Some might think that not spending any money all summer, and often starting to get paid over time is the bottom line benefit, but the real bottom line is your transformation into an excellent outdoor leader, ready for employment as a nature guide wherever organizations and agencies need qualified experts. Your goals will expand over the course of the summer, from learning the basics of earth skills education, to focusing on the development of your personal skills, to being given teaching opportunities during the summer according to your desire and readiness.

There is an invisible force, an energy of sorts, that governs all life, it is powerful, omnipotent, and slowly works to keep all things on our planet in equilibrium (Although, it seems as though mankind is trying to do the exact opposite). In an attempt to help get more people to spend time in the wilderness and get in touch with nature we are profiling individuals who are making a difference and who are encouraging others to get out there.

HT: You spend a lot of your time working on TV productions, in front of the camera or behind it. Survival instructor Chris Stephens teaches Junior Survivalists and their families how to make emergency shelters at the Lake Solano family campout. Charlotte M. More than a dozen youths ages 10 to 14 from Davis and elsewhere in the Sacramento region are better-equipped to handle wilderness emergencies thanks to a four-day Junior Summer Survival Series presented by Tuleyome Home Place Adventures. The kids met daily last Wednesday through Saturday to learn wilderness survival and safety skills through hands-on activities and demonstrations and from guest speakers. Tuleyome’s award-winning outdoors program, Home Place Adventures, encourages people of all ages to become more connected to and involved with the natural world that surrounds us. The goal of this program is to educate and empower our community to care for and help protect the land and resources that we enjoy and on which we depend.
The survival series began with “Survival 101” on Wednesday at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve in Woodland.
On Thursday, the kids visited the Conaway Ranch, where they got a “Search and Rescue 101” lesson.
On Saturday morning, the Junior Survivalists were put to the test with a series of obstacles, and then awarded certificates and their own mini survival kit.

Three basic certificates are required before you begin, two from BWI, and one from another reputable source.

Past apprentices say that the place they learned the most about teaching and leadership, as well as where they learned the greatest bulk of their earth skills, was while assisting the incredible instructors at Wolf Camp as they guided youth and adults through the summer.
