· Length: 14 Days
· For Alumni Only
· Tuition: $0
After a lengthy period as a student, there is nothing like getting out and doing it on your own to lock in everything you’ve learned.
During the Primitive Wilderness Living Practicum, participants travel away from the road and into the forest where they live with a skill set and technology level that is simple and austere. They bring some basics with them: sleeping bag, tarp, metal pot, some food, fishing kit, axe, knife, metal pot. They transition into using primitive technologies for their fire and shelter needs. They transition from brought food to gathered food, catching fish and gathering plants. This is not a guided trip. No instructors are present. It’s self-guided. Students put what they’ve learned during the semester into practice. For tuition and insurance purposes, this is a student-guided activity, so there is no associated tuition. There is no instructor or guide on the trip. If you need your hand held, this experience is not for you.
Practicum Dates For 2019
In 2019 we’ve scheduled the practicum for 7/28-8/10. This is immediately following the Alumni Allagash Canoe Trip. Both of these events are part of the Y2P (Year 2 Alumni Program).
