Event description

She Explores Adventure is collaborating with a highly knowledgable and well known Survival Skills Instructor Rick Peterson. Rick leads Fathers and Sons to rediscover their connection, character and capabilities additionally with other special workshops and immersions. 


We will utilise old knowledge, along with modern technology, working with nature to assist us with the prioritising of survival needs. In this event, you will gain a greater understanding of the psychology of fear, and phobias and how we may overcome them.

Trip Highlights: 

  • Hands on learning working with water, shelter, fire, food, rescue signals
  • Essential functional knots, lashings and frapping 
  • Use of tools
  • Navigation practices
  • Guided Sound Immersions, Mindful Meditations, & Movement
  • We don't want to take away all the surprises so we will leave it at that

 Recommendations for Eco Friendly Preparation

  • Dress or pack accordingly for the season, this is also appropriate when it comes to tents and wet weather gear
  • Many items can be purchased secondhand from marketplace and charity stores, as some intrepid travellers will do a one-off trip, and then offload their gear for a budget price, looking at unbiased reviews on particular brands is always a good idea, borrowing equipment from friends is also a great way to determine if this is suitable to your needs into the future
  • A detailed list of what to bring will also be made available when final payment is made

Sleeping Arrangements: 

  • The choice of tent or sleeping arrangements are up to you, on some occasions I will strongly discourage the use of swags, as they are not practical to walk with.
  • Once again borrowing a tent (after checking that it is complete with Poles, Pegs, fly! etc) this can be a great way to look at the pros and cons of future purchases.
  • Once again look at the season, expected weather and conditions and function required, room for your pack and boots to keep them out of the weather at night.


  • Meals Snacks, Water, Coffee, Tea, and Hot chocolate or equivalent will be catered for 
  • The majority of food provided will be generic in nature, meeting most dietary needs, should you have particular medical food intolerances feel free to let me know and I will attempt to cater for your needs, If not disclosed it cannot be catered for. If it is a lifestyle choice be sure to pack additional snacks to cater to your lifestyle choice
  • Keeping in mind real survival situations don’t cater to sensitive palate’s, fad diets or allergies.
  • Meat and vegetables will be prepared, cooked and served 
  • Participant assistance is required with Camp routine and food preparation along with cleaning of cooking equipment and utensils.

*Note no illegal trapping or snaring of native wildlife will occur on any of my events.

Personal Hygiene & Toileting:

  • As we are in a bush setting, there are no showers available. If you wish to bring wipes you may but they are to be taken out as rubbish, not buried or burnt on the campfire
  • Correct remot toileting will be discussed 
  • We will construct a bush toilet or (latrine) with a basic screen, adhering to best toileting and Camp hygiene practice techniques  for both you and the group’s health and well-being, along with that of the environment and waterways.
  • We will dedicate education on this subject
