About the instructors -

Connor NoyesLead Instructor

Connors passion for the outdoors sparked as a youth exploring the Alberta Badlands and the Boreal Forest and waters of Ontario. Through organizations such as Scouts and Army Cadets, he grew up learning outdoor skills and leadership, eventually transpiring into a career teaching in the outdoors. His love of the wild lies in traditional skills, such as woodcraft, archery, canoeing, and bushcraft. Having instructed for organizations such as the Venture Centre in the UK, the Calgary Canoe Club, the Calgary Outdoor Centre, and for Scouts Canada Chinook Council, he is driven to deliver the best instruction possible, and skills that will last you a lifetime.
Picture Andrea Sebok

What we know about Andrea is that she grew up on a farm and we guess she never left. Andrea is right at home in the bush- whether its paddling into the wind across a lake, or foraging in knee deep snow to collect sap for Spruce gum, she loves every minute of it. When not teaching, Andrea works as an Animal Health Technician, specializing mainly in large animals. Her passions for the outdoors include snowshoeing, paddling, snowboarding, and on occasion you will find her flying through the mountains by quad. Her passion for teaching started in college, coaching high school volleyball and now is applied to teaching for Scouts Canada, and for ABCs. 
The winter bushcraft course runs from February 27th to March 1st at Beaver Mines Lake, Alberta.
The cost is only $220.00, which includes food, by the way.
But...members of the Canadian Preppers Network will receive a $50.00 rebate and pay only $170.00.
