Atleo River Air Service spent a weekend up the coast on our annual survival training weekend. The goal of this training is to provide wilderness confidence and team building. The idea is to be dropped off in a remote area with little more than your sleeping bag. During the time there, staff hone their skills on making shelters, fire building, and food gathering.
“Once you get into it, you realize all the comforts are already there and survival turns into a luxury camping adventure” says owner Jay Bertin.
Every year before the workshop wraps up, all involved participate in a site clean-up which is just one way of giving back. This year 2.5 kilometers of remote coastline was cleared from debris. There was a noticeable increase in identifiable debris from Japan.
