It is my pleasure to announce that we will be running our first boreal forest wilderness living course October 1-5th 2018!

Have you ever wanted to know what it takes to live comfortably in the Boreal forest with minimal supplies? This fall we'll do just that!

This course will be held on private land, giving participants the opportunity to be hands on in every aspect. We will cut our own fire wood, fell trees, cook meals, and practice a large variety of wilderness skills, including friction fire, shelter construction, inclement weather fires, and more!


Cost: $750, for each additional friend or family member, cost of tuition is discounted to $550

Cost includes instruction, camping fees, small bushcraft kit(see below), and 2 meals per day (Monday-Friday)



Masardis, Maine, located in beautiful Aroostook County. This course will be hosted at the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School Campus. You will receive detailed driving directions upon enrollment. 

Travel Information

Tim Smith at Jack Mountain has put together a great resource for travel information here If you have questions, please email

We do recommend driving, but it is possible to arrange air travel.

Participants may start arriving Sunday afternoon, and are required to be on site by 8am on Monday. Course wraps up Friday, but students are welcome to stay the night and leave Saturday morning.


To ensure that everyone is properly equipped during the course, participants will each be given a small survival kit, to include a 10cm billy pot, mora knife, cordage, bucksaw blade, and tarp. All other equipment must be provided by the participant. Participants should bring whatever they need to feel comfortable in the woods. We will be sleeping in shelters every night, so it is not necessary to bring a tent unless you'd like to sleep in it for the 1st night. We recommend bringing your own axe. Axes are an enormous part of life in the boreal forest!
