About our School
Advanced Survival Training is an outdoor school which was founded in May of 2012 by Tim MacWelch, as a sister institution to The Earth Connection School which he founded in 1997. We have no hidden agenda in our classes. We are not selling our own brand of religion or spirituality. Each class teaches what it promises to teach. We feel that our hands-on courses and personal attention provide the best way to learn primitive technology and outdoor skills. Our mission is to teach our students how to be comfortable and feel at home in the wilderness; and to understand the resources and history around them.
As of August 2013, we will no longer be holding classes at the location near Fredericksburg, Va.
The rest of our 2013 schedule has been modified to accommodate new dates and new locations. Please email us for an updated list of this fall's classes. Thanks!
