A history of us

Future Necessities is a wilderness skills and primitive technology school. Our classes are designed to be a unique experience for each student. We offer classes in basic, intermediate, and advanced survival. We also teach fire making, bow making, twining and cordage, and nature connection. We have spent our lives gaining our own connections and our own sense of confidence and self-reliance.

Now; we want to share this with you!
