Tuition and Registration 2021

Apprenticeship (3 weeks)

$1,350 Full Program 

…includes 90+ hrs of instruction, and camping space with your own gear, does NOT include meals

Partial Program

2 weeks = $950

1 week= $500

We highly recommend attending the full program, however, we understand if not everyone can achieve this.  We will not be offering any payment options less than 7 days.  If you can only attend for less than 7 days, the price is still $500.  This includes 1 rest day (which might be your arrival day) and possibly 1 community work day.

See Food and Lodging for information on amenities.

To register– contact us with an email introducing who you are, which session you would like to take, and where you will be traveling from,  (if you have never taken a course with us, we may have some prerequisites for you to fulfill via the archives)

To secure your space (after we have accepted your application and engaged via email), all accepted participants will need to submit a non-refundable deposit of $200, remaining balance due prior to or upon arrival.

We will only be accepting 7 participants per session.  Once those spaces are filled we will open a waiting list (you do not need to pay the deposit until pulled off the waiting list.)

If for unforeseen reasons, we should have to cancel the course, prior to start up or mid way through, due to pandemic shutdowns or fire threat/fire evacuation, please understand that your deposit and tuition will not be refunded, however, it will be pro-rated and credited to a future in person course or online course.  We hope you can understand this policy in our current pandemic times.  Our training grounds are located in “fire country” and we have been faced with more and more mega fires throughout the summers.  We do have back-up locations to attempt to continue the course in the event of fire evacuation.    

If a student should cancel their participation in a course midway through, due to health ailments or family emergency or otherwise, tuition will not be refunded but prorated and forwarded as credit to future courses.  If a student becomes sick within 2 weeks prior to the course and cannot attend to protect the safety of others, their deposit is still non-refundable.
