Second to knowledge, what are the most essential survival tools? This course is intended to introduce you to the safe use of your most important hand tools for processing wood, making snares and traps, preparing food, fire-making, digging, hammering stakes or posts, and building platforms.

Instructor: Todd Gantzer


Todd is a longtime and active woodsman. He spent several years training in and teaching wilderness survival. Todd is an avid student of Bushcraft and Primitive Skills. He considers himself a hardcore steel junkie and has made an in depth study of what to choose as the "best tool for that job". This has led him down the path of becoming an obsessive maker of hand carved wooden spoons with hand tools.

What to Bring:

  • Work Gloves

  • Comfortable work-outside clothing

  • Water bottle
