Jeff Hatch, Owner/Instructor
Jeff had a close connection with nature since he was a young child, always out in the forest making forts and exploring. As he got older he studied primitive skills, wilderness survival and how Native Americans lived their lives, he recreate everything he learned. The Sami people of Lapland Scandinavia live very close to the earth, from them he has learned so much. Of all First Nation people, his connection with Sami is very close. Jeff’s travels have taken him on many wilderness adventures around the world including Vancouver Island, Canadian Rockies and Alaska. Jeff now focuses what he has learned into teaching other people how to not only survive but to thrive in the wild. He works closely with a few outdoor companies, including Fjallraven, Primus, UCO Gear, Adventure Sworn. He is also an avid backpacker, hiker, & canoeist.
Jim Rejniak, Instructor
Growing up in New England, Jim has spent a lot of his time outdoors, and over the years has grown into a strong connection with the natural world. Learning much from his family about traditional ways of living with the wilderness, antiques and tool restoration, he has found himself involved in the world of primitive skills. Throughout the past several years, he has developed a strong passion for traditional hiking, camping, and woodcraft, influenced heavily by Scandinavian craft. Always in search of knowledge and adventure, Jim enjoys sharing what he has learned in a hope to promote an appreciation for the wilderness in others.
