The time at SAC will be divided between instruction and application.Attendees are placed into two-man survival teams and will select a name and motto for their team.They learn skills such as advanced fire craft, primitive beds and shelters, outdoor cooking, and first aid. Teams construct, live and sleep in survival shelters. They build solar stills and use the water that is obtained. They learn how to acquire and prepare food from their surroundings. Their survival kits are inspected and brought up to minimum standards by the camp staff. SAC includes a 24-hour survival experience.
