Primitive Backpacking Weekend

Take your outdoor skills to the next level. For those who love the backcountry and sleeping in a tent, shelter, or hammock. Cooking over an open fire and relying on natural resources. Our Primitive Camping Weekend is for all levels of experience. We’ll teach you the basics of primitive camping.

In general, primitive camping is defined as being without neighbors, electricity, running water, bathroom facilities and, often times, cell service. You camp in a remote location and provide everything for yourself.

We will cover the following: setting up camp, meal prep, and cooking, fire, water purification, Leave No Trace, what gear is needed versus what is NOT needed, how to handle unexpected emergencies, building your own cooking system using resources around you, and more.

We will provide the food for cooking. Each participant will be required to cook their own meals. Cooking will be done over an open fire using various cook systems taught by the HBF Outdoors, LLC. staff.

COST PERSON: $200.00 for a 3 day/ 2 night trip
