RO5 WOMEN

Have you ever found yourself in a potentially dangerous situation where you wish you had taken that knot-tying class, or knew how to create shelter or to start a fire without modern conveniences? We’ve all heard stories about “that woman that saved the day”.

Transport yourself back in time, unleash the adventurer and experience a tantalizing taste of the very skills that have been keeping humans alive for tens of thousands of years! In this 72-hour lively learning retreat we explore the foundational skills our ancestors developed, mastered and relied on to live in the wild.

This extraordinary journey is designed for women who want to experience something out of the norm. Tap into your inner wisdom and self-confidence by re-learning the skills all women, historically, used daily.

After 72 hours, you will:

  • Leave understanding the importance of proper trip preparedness
  • Feel a deeper appreciation for self-reliant skills
  • Know foundational skills of Ro5 (shelter, fire, edge, vessel, cordage)

ALL-INCLUSIVE AMENITIES

Wilderness Adventure Travel accommodations and meals

An ultimate New Mexico camping experience

Our all-inclusive rate structure ensures visits to the Rule of Five are a memorable and unique experience combining comfortable safari-style wilderness camping, chef-prepared meals and a unique atmosphere.

Often other outdoor survival organizations do not consider contemporary comforts as an important aspect for a learning atmosphere. We strongly believe in a learning environment that supports inquiry, fun and first hand experience. Our goal is to ensure our guests experience high quality comfort paired with rustic simplicity to support an experience that allows for learning and adventure.

The all-inclusiveness Rule of Five provides is a cornerstone in the guest experience. We are pleased to offer chef-prepared meals, comfortable accommodations, experienced staff and expert instructors all steeped in the idea that the Rule of Five Base will become the center of an unforgettable experience for the length of your stay.

Literally, all you need are your clothes, a sleeping bag, personal items, a positive attitude and adventurous spirit.
