  • There is no previous experience needed. You will however want access to the outdoors to try all your new found skills out in.

The essential guide to survival in the wilderness will teach you life saving skills for outdoor survival. Just by viewing the lecture survival priorities you stand a 50% greater chance of survival, we have set it as a free lecture so this information is available to any one.

The course will inspire you to spend time outdoors and begin to learn natures secrets. With practice your experience of being outdoors will be changed forever as you feel confident connected and part of nature.

This course is based on 19 years of teaching experience, over which time Thomas has taught thousands of students and helped to establish 10 other schools teaching these skills, The course aims to give you a feeling of one to one instruction on these basic survival subjects. Shelter, water, fire, food, and an introduction to nature awareness subjects such as Tracking and natural movement or stalking. There is a large emphasis on wild edible and medicinal plants and trees also covering some of their utilitarian uses.

The course we hope will inspire life long learning in the outdoors. The material presented is usually taught over a weekend and that is quite an intense experience. We recommend watching the lectures on a particular subject and then spending some time out doors trying out the skills or downloading it to your mobile device and watching it out in nature!

There are over three and a half hours of lectures though we recommend you take your time with each subject. You will find there is enough information to keep you going with your own experiments for years.

Who is the target audience?
  • These skills have been passed down from our ancestors and are suitable for all inhabitants of planet Earth. We recommend this course for students from 11 years to 99. We have taught these skills to people from 4 years old to 74.

Survival Instructor

Thomas Schorr-kon established his survival school Trackways in 1995 and has inspired and taught many hundreds of people from all ages and backgrounds, individuals, families, schools and businesses. With 19 years of teaching experience he presents his teaching on line for the first time.

These courses are about discovering the skills that make us feel at home on the Earth, they awaken a strong innate nature connection and open our lives to the adventure of the great outdoors.

Thomas Schorr-kon’s survival school was the first survival school in the U. K. to offer a year course teaching the full spectrum of skills required for survival living. Trackways was also the first to offer these skills to families with the creation of the family camp in 2000. Trackways has inspired and mentored many other teachers and inspired the creation of six other survival schools to date.

Thomas has trained with the renowned Medicine Tracker Tom Brown Jr. over the past 20 years, returning regularly to the Tracker school to continue his training. Thomas was previously involved in teaching Ancient English woodland crafts from 1992. He has also travelled widely and trained with indigenous people and other medicine teachers. Through extensive personal training and research he has developed a deep understanding for the full spectrum of skills associated with Earth living. He has also trained as a martial artist since the age of 8. “The approach that is taught is one of moving towards oneness with nature. To ultimately be able to survive with no modern tools or equipment”.
