We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to live in the beautiful southwestern part of the State of Utah. Southern Utah is the great hub of some the world’s most famous National Parks and our central outdoor classroom is within their shadows and the breathtaking views.
The heart and soul of Zion Wilderness Survival School is found within the core teachings of Winfield Ivers ‘Wilderness Survival Education’. Winfield has been teaching scouting groups, troubled teens, experienced hikers, corporate employees and leaders, plus many others in the ancient art of wilderness survival for over 25 years. His keen survival knowledge and practiced techniques have helped many people learn how to stay alive in the wilderness and enjoy it. His humorous and powerful way of linking the wilderness survival skills to the survival skills of daily life is always refreshing and unforgettable.
“I regard the outdoor survival course that I took from Winfield Ivers as one of the high points in the last many years. I found his knowledge, of the subject matter comprehensive and intriguing. He was able to present things in a way which was enjoyable and educational, without any pretense of superiority. I found this refreshing in an age when it is so easy to display an “I am better than you” attitude. I have used the things taught to me in many ways to improve my understanding of the world around me, and I feel infinitely more at ease with the thoughts of having to take care of myself in a survival situation. I can truly recommend Winfield as one of that rare breed of people who bring out the best in others, instilling in them confidence born of both practice and knowledge. I would recommend any course which he were to teach on the outdoors to anyone”.
