Location

  

The school’s main Base Camp is located at a camp 230 miles from the capital city of Whitehorse in the remote wilderness of the Yukon Territory in northern Canada.  The Northwestern section of the territory offers endless mountain ranges, vast boreal forests, complex glacier river systems, unsettling permafrost land with rich First Nation history as well as Alaska’s snowcapped mountains in the distance as one border and the amazing untouched land of Kluane National Park on the other side.  Pristine wilderness is at your doorstep after you travel the famous historical Alaska Highway to the base camp.  Directions will be given in registration package. Many of the other camps and trails you will travel on have very limited accessibility and may lightly or have not have been traveled to by horse, boat or floatplane.  An Environment like no other...

The classroom has very little walls and a whole lot of rugged wilderness with endless mountains and valleys of learning.  You will not have other people, towns or groups can distract you as our classroom is mobile as we have a lot of space to teach in.  This is why the Yukon has truly one of the best outfitting management models in the world because areas are vast but limited and can not grow as areas have no overlap.  We are fortunate to be able to hunt, trap, camp, hike, fish and raise horses here in western Yukon.  We believe this creates excellent business practices to teach, share and even more promiote that this is living life that most people only dream of....

Student’s will be setting up camps throughout the program.   Students will be staying in mostly spike camps with wall tents and/ or backpack light tents.  Cabins are only at the main camp and will be used in the beginnning and end of program.  We have 24 hour daylight so camp lighting is plenty and free!!   All food and meals are provided and cooked for by the students with some guidance and proper menu planning as this will prepare you for the real world of outfitting camps.  Limited shower, laundry and outhouses will be available at camps as students are at small spike camps and will manage with tweeking the backcountry skills.  The camps are simple and will require your good housekeeping skills and chore duties to keep them clean and ready as they would if guests were to arrive at any time.  Students be proud of your camp !
