Archive for National Survival Education Center



    Live Free USA Established the first American Survival Center in Wisconsin in the late 1970’s.  We conducted extended scenario based and realistic training there. Unfortunately we were forced to sell that property after about ten years due to lack of support  Since then we have used state and private facilities to conduct outdoor survival, self-defense, self-reliance and disaster survival education programs. The use of these facilities is limited and often prohibitive for some of the types of training we would want to do. We had all of the facilities listed below and would want to establish them again. A new survival training facility or even several facilities could serve Live Free and multiple organizations, providing responsible, safe and effective survival education for the challenges to life and freedom in this century.

  • Secure access control and parking
  • Comfortable and private camping facilities
  • Picnic and training shelter and building
  • Meeting building
  • Sanitary facilities
  • First aid and rescue training area
  • Primitive camping and survival training area
  • Unarmed combat training area
  • A rifle and pistol target range
  • A combat rifle and pistol range
  • An archery and primitive weapons range
  • Nature trail with edible and medicinal plants
