Journeyman Certification Holders

The Journeyman Certification is not easy to achieve. Those that reach this standard have our respect and admiration.

Journeyman Guide Certificate Holder List

This list is made up of those who have completed our Journeyman Certification. Beginning with the spring, 2018 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester, the process became much more formalized. This doesn’t downplay the commitment and achievement of those who helped us pioneer the concept, but it does require a differentiation of some sort.
