Family Camp 2 | Advanced

Survival classes for parents and children

Our course for all wilderness experts

Using the basic course as a basis, we will learn many more important survival techniques in this course. This means a lot more, exciting moments for the family. Except for one night we will stay at Schalklhof, sleep in the teepees and be provided with delicious meals. We still learn below pleasant circumstances. It is not our goal to be in an extreme survival situation, but to learn many new things with fun.

Our recommendations

A possible course for one parental unit and a teenaged child is bow construction. We welcome teens to take part in this bow construction course for adults. The idea of a parent and their child constructing a bow together works wonderful. This unique teamwork is often used as a transition-ceremony.


Course language

We'd like to draw your attention to the fact that our courses and seminars are usually held in german language! If, however, a high number of people book in who don't speak german, we are willing to hold a separate course for the respective group. In addition and independently from our program, it's possible to use our area for your very own seminars, meetings, workshops, events and much more!
