2021 Keynote Speaker – (2022 Keynote -TBD.)

Tom DeWeese – The Wrenching Transformation of America. The Battle for American Freedom – How to Fight Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, The Great Reset, and the Green New Deal, all Coming Soon to Your Community.

Tom DeWeese is the Founder and President of the American Policy Center – one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence.

Tom DeWeese was one of the first to voice concern over the radical agenda of the environmental movement and to question its motives. Since 1992 he has been sounding the alarm against the UN’s Agenda 21 and its policy of Sustainable Development as a threat to private property rights, free markets and American sovereignty and independence.

For over 45 years Tom DeWeese has been a businessman, grassroots activist, writer and publisher. As such, he has always advocated a firm belief in man’s need to keep moving forward while protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.

Tom will discuss Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, and the Green New Deal which are all the same “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of Human society,” as the UN originally described Agenda 21 in 1992. Today, that blueprint has been updated to the Great Reset that will devastate the three pillars of freedom, including free enterprise, private property ownership, and individual choice. All of these plans are imposed through the false labels of climate change and sustainable development.

Tom will then show how these policies are imposed at the local level through a coordinated attack by well organized, non-governmental organizations (NGOs). And Tom will show how to build a team in your own community to stand up to, and expose those NGOs, and effectively organize and protect your three pillars of freedom.

Scheduled Classes (in alphabetical order):


Aquaponics for Homesteaders and Preppers

In this class we discuss some of the many options available to the beginner blacksmith . In my previous class Blacksmithing on the Cheap we focused on constructing a forge by scrapping and a scrounging the necessary parts. This class will focus more on sourcing parts from the local hardware store and laying a foundation for good technique.


Bug Out Bags – Create One that is Realistic, Light, Smart, and Fight Ready. 

Jan Emore

Let’s face it. People have too much stuff in their bug out bags. Most people’s bags are too big, too heavy, and can make you a target in a critical situation.

Jan Emore has a smart way to create your bug out bag, so that is half “minimalist” survival bag, and half basic ballistics bag. Times are a changin’, and your bug out bag may need a change too.

Come find out how to build a bug out bag that is lightweight as well as hunt/fight ready.


Cheese Making

Grannie Pam

Nobody likes powdered milk- do they?  But you almost have to have powdered milk, if you are going to be able to store that kind of protein for the long term.

 But Grannie Pam can show you  how you can use powdered milk from food storage to make a tasty  30 minute Mozzarella cheese plus  a Ricotta cheese at the same time-(made from the left over whey)!

 Grannie Pam is an expert in food preparation, food storage, canning, lacto-fermentation for the production of sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickles, dehydration, cheese making, and working with sourdough.  She is the author of “Grannie Pam’s Favorite Recipes” and “Grannie Pam’s Prepping With Big Flavors”. 


Colloidal Silver -The Virus Killer – for Emergency Preparedness


Jonathan Glauser

Colloidal Silver is one of the most invaluable items to have on hand in an emergency situation.  It can be extremely useful for medical first aid, as Colloidal Silver heals the skin better than anything else can.  Great to have on hand for cuts, punctures, burns, infections, etc.  Colloidal Silver can be taken internally as a natural antibiotic, helping the body fight infections, and is crucial to have on hand in the case of a biological attack.  Colloidal Silver, when made correctly, can be applied directly in the eyes, ears, sinuses, and even lungs.  In addition, Colloidal Silver can be used to disinfect water and preserve food.


Jonathan Glauser is the creator of Mountain Well-Being and is a leading expert in the field of colloidal minerals and natural health products. He’s been manufacturing the finest quality Colloidal Silver, Colloidal Gold, and Colloidal Copper for 15 years.  Come learn everything you ever wanted to know about Colloidal Silver.  All questions will be answered.  Jonathan will also cover other key nutritional supplements that are essential for optimal health, such as Organic Sulfur (MSM), Iodine, Dimethylglycine (DMG), Superfoods such as Moringa and Blue-Green Algae, as well as touch on Colloidal Gold and Colloidal Copper uses.  This is a very informative class for those that care about natural health.



Dehydrating For Food Preservation

Grannie Pam

 Learn what, where and how to dehydrate and why dehydrating foods is one of the simplest, easiest, and best ways to store food.  A 5 lb bag of corn can be reduced down to a sandwich bag.  Dehydrating takes very little space,  and doesn’t require heavy glass jars that can fall and break off your shelf.  Find out all you need to know about dehydrating, and how to get the right equipment to do it.

Dutch Oven & Camp Cooking

Ronald “Pork Chop” Mangum

Ron will be cooking from morning to evening every day breakfast, lunch and dinner. He will do breakfast casseroles, some kind of stew, soup or chili for lunch, and he will have cobblers or cakes in the evening times, as well as a main course.

During class Ron will go over seasoning cast iron, learning how to cook over an open fire, or in a traditional oven, as well as handouts on the charcoal temperatures and recipes that I have used in the past.

Ron will open the class up for instructional conversation with a hands on approach as well as teaching how to stack and or the uses of the lids of the Dutch ovens.

Ron will also go through the process of seasoning some cast iron as well as cleaning and maintaining the cast iron, with a small dip in to the history of cast iron and why it is still the best cooking surface today.

Entrepreneurship for Survival – Starting a Business to Survive the Cultural Revolution

James Walton

In 2021 and beyond, those who can adapt to the cultural revolution will be those who survive and even thrive under the criminal regime that has taken over the country and infected the corporations. (Working for either of these monsters is quite frankly professional and personal suicide in my opinion.)

I want to show you how to set up a CANCEL proof business that can start as a side business and eventually become your ticket to freedom in this age of censorship and oppression.

In this class we will discuss:

Why Entrepreneurship is a survival imperative

Being a solopreneur

Where your paychecks should come from

Building your community and customer base

Several quick businesses to start in a hurry that you can build on overtime.

Fermenting to Preserve Foods

Suzanne Upton

Welcome to the age-old ways of preserving food by fermenting!  Throughout history, food was preserved with brines and seasonings, not only to extend the life of the food but to enhance its health-giving benefits.  Fermented foods are packed with nutrients and probiotics that our bodies can easily digest, which is critical in any survival situation.  Fermentation includes breads, fruits, drinks, meats, and vegetables.  Learn how this tasty method should be a part of your prepper plan for food preservation.  Suzanne will share the nutrition benefits and safe methods of fermentation preservation, how to enhance your garden harvests with spices and seasonings for taste and storage, and help you get started using this amazing method to preserve any fresh vegetable or fruit for your own health and survival well-being.

(*Class for gardening and education purposes only.  No medical advice will be given.)


Home Defense

Dave Stutts

Our Home Defense Course will delve into just what it takes to keep your most valuable assets safe. These assets are your spouse, kids, and friends. Property can be replaced through your insurance policies, but a life and mental anguish is something which can never be fully recovered from.

We all have watched the news and seen how violent crimes are on the rise, especially since politicians are cutting the budgets of our local Law Enforcement Officers and allowing convicted violent criminals to be released from prisons.

These same politicians understand the threat and live inside homes surrounded by fences, protected by strong men and women who carry firearms that you could never be allowed to own, and have the most expensive Security Systems available.

  • Here are the topics we will discuss:
  • The Criminal’s Profile
  • The Sheep Dog
  • Perimeter Security
  • Emergency Kits
  • Inside of your Home
  • Outside of your Home
  • Have a Plan
  • Firearms & Equipment

Firearms are not your only choice for Home Defense. But they are the most effective. Bad Guys typically stop their attack once they have been shot multiple times.


How to Encourage Prepping Among Family and Friends

Ryan and Colin Buford

“Project-Based Preparedness: How to Encourage Prepping Among Family and Friends”

The prepper mindset varies from person to person – sometimes within the same household. Being the only prepper in the house doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Including family and friends on your path toward preparedness can be as rewarding as it is effective. But only if you know how to introduce the subject without getting shut down.

Join Ryan and Colin Buford as they provide real solutions for one of the hardest questions preppers have to face:  How do I get my spouse/family/friends to buy in when it comes to prepping? By approaching preparedness from a project-based mindset, you’ll learn skills and techniques designed to include, inform, and instruct.  In this seminar you’ll learn:

* What project-based prepping is

* Specific prepping projects

* Why timing is critical

* How to teach by example

* Methods of inclusion

How to Reload Ammunition

Nik Davrados

Have you ever heard wondered about ammunition reloading?

Have you been curious about doing it yourself, but are intimidated by the unknown?

Have you gotten bogged down in all of the different equipment and processes?

Nik Davrados (Redeye Reloading) will tell you about the basic process and benefits of hand-loading your own ammunition, as well the best equipment selection to perform the basic process.

By the end of the class we will help everyone answer two important questions; is handloading for me, and can I do this? The former depends on you, but the latter is an overwhelming YES. 


Knife Defense 101 / Using a Knife for Self Defense.

Hakim Isler

The edged weapons are some of the most commonly found and used weapons in the world.

Every household in the US has an edged weapon in it, however besides using it to make a sandwich, most people have no understanding of how to truly use the knife as a weapon for self- defense or counter-offense.

In this class we will explore the true science of edged weapons in an easy to understand, easy to use and easy to retain way.

We will focus on:

Proper Holding

Stabbing vs slashing


Movements of avoidance and entry

and more…

Lewis & Clark Salt Meat Preservation

John MacEntrye Allen

The 1803 Corps of Discovery was amazing in many ways. When you read the journal in an edited commentary, the editor sometimes misses the importance of salt. The journal does not emphasize it, because people back then knew why salt was necessary. Without it, the expedition would have failed. As it happened, the Lewis & Clark expedition almost starved while crossing the Rocky Mountains, simply because they ran out of salt. When they wintered at the mouth of the Columbia River, their chief occupations were to store up meat jerky, and to make salt from seawater. Without salt, they would not have made it back over the Rockies to their cache of supplies (including salt) at Great Falls, Montana. In this class, we will discuss how the Corps of Discovery used salt to make meat last several days. We will also demonstrate how a modern hunter can preserve meat the way Lewis & Clark did, when refrigeration is not immediately available.  Lastly, we will discuss good alternatives to salt for preserving meat.

Making Soap 101


Few people realize that the 3rd highest cause of cancer is said to be related to chemicals normally found in hygiene related products we use today in our homes, on ourselves and on our families. Learn to make something as simple and humble as your own soap. Imagine knowing exactly what is in it before using it? And in a true “you’re on your own” long term situation, think about how important soap would be (or the lack of it).

In this class you’ll learn how simple it is to make your own soap. You’ll learn about the basic ingredients, how and why they work together, options for additives and the process itself.  I’ll also explain the truth surrounding how “dangerous” lye really is. I’ll provide you the knowledge to change a healthy and appropriate “fear” into “respect” for lye. I’ll explain it’s importance and how to safely handle it or produce your own if needed. After this class, you may never buy soap again! You’ll know what of only 2 ingredients are needed and how to use them to make your own. Yeah, really.

Meals in a Jar (Or Bag) –  Great Tasting Food – Premade Meals Ready to Go – Made from Your Food Storage

Grannie Pam

One of the biggest problems for any prepper (after they survive the End of the World as We Know It) is going to be food fatigue. No one wants to go from a life of flavorful food, to eating just beans and rice the rest of their lives.  Learn how to make premade meals that take up less space, have a longer shelf life, and cost a lot less to make than MREs.

And good tasting meals can be a huge morale booster for your family and survival group.  Learn how Grannie Pam takes bland food stores, and with just a little of this, and a pinch of that- turns them into a flavorful and healthy meal that people are happy to eat, in any situation. And everything you need for each meal is already put together in one jar (or sealed storage bag).

Grannie Pam is an expert in food preparation, food storage, canning, lacto-fermentation for the production of sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickles, dehydration, cheese making, and working with sourdough.  She is the author of “Grannie Pam’s Favorite Recipes” and “Grannie Pam’s Prepping With Big Flavors”.

He talks about how to build a Faraday Gage for EMP protection and more importantly, what to put in it!

To bunker or not to bunker, that is the question and Dave gives you his view on bunkers.

He talks about the best protection in a chemical attack, the number one killer in any NBC attack, the best protection from a biological agent or a pandemic including Anthrax, Ebloa, the Zika Virus and the flu.

Dave also talks about the current state of affairs in the world and tells you what the most likely type of attack and when would the best time for the attack to happen.

Observation Posts, Lookouts, Scouting, & Target Detection

Gabby (Kerry) Alzner

Learn how to detect an enemy, and the signs that bad guys may be lurking around.

As a Sniper in Special Forces this was one of our main missions when conducting counter-terrorism mission or hostage rescues.

This class will teach you how to scan and identify various targets, as well as indicators that something is strange, or not natural in the area. The class will cover how to spot and identify items, and how to make a sector sketch, to note the items found, to alert the rest of your team.

Think of someone on a lookout position (OP) as they scan their area of responsibility, they spot something that’s not quite right. They make a note, plot it on the area sketch and notify others. Or if they are looking at a possible target/Bad-guy compound they can spot their security positions.

Although not required, students should bring binoculars and or spotting scopes for a more enhanced learning experience.

Pandemic and Biological Warfare Survival

Dave Jones

Due to current events Dave, The NBC Guy, was asked to talk about pandemics and biological warfare and how to survive them. In this special presentation, he talks about Ebola, Zika, anthrax, the plague, the coronavirus and the common flu.

Dave will cover all the things to look for during an outbreak in your area and in a worldwide pandemic, including how these things spread. He tells you what preps you will need to have on hand now and what the immediate actions are that you need to take as things unfold.

Dave will discuss triggers that each person should consider when implementing their bug in plan. He talks about how to isolate your family from the rest of the world and about how long you should do it for different sicknesses.

Dave will tell you the number one cause of death in a biological warfare attack and it’s not the sickness itself!

He goes over how to turn your master bedroom into a quarantine facility and how to care for any family members that may get sick. Don’t miss this presentation on biological warfare and how to protect yourself and your family in this truly unthinkable event.

Patrol Movement & Formations- How to Travel and React to Threats as a Team

Gabby (Kerry) Alzner

In this class you will learn standard battle field movements and formations such as the Fire Team and the Squad Size Wedge, which are used when patrolling cross country. You will learn how to safely and properly travel as a team, as well as traveling over watch, and bounding overwatch.   These are the foundation for the basic battle drills known as Immediate Action Drills (IADs). The IADs teach members of the patrol how to re-act as a team, when contact with an enemy force is encountered, including how to react to being ambushed, or if you spot the enemy first. What actions do you take?

Basic Fire & Maneuver tactics will be taught from Fire Team movement, Buddy Teams and individual movements.  

Prepper’s Approach to Garage Sales

John MacEntrye Allen

There must be a wee bit of Scottish Heritage in all of us, because when we go to garage sales we look for bargains in general. But when Preppers go to a garage sale, we look for a specific kind of bargain. A good example is knife sharpeners. What is a good bargain for $25… a NIB Work Sharp or a NIB Lansky? The Scot says, “That Work Sharp retails for $80.” But the Prepper purchases the Lansky, and won’t even turn his head for a tool that requires electricity.

The things that a Prepper looks for fall into several categories: Cord and Battery Free Tools, Household and Construction Consumables, Low Technology Gizmos, Food That Lasts Forever, Reference Books, and more. Learn about many more categories, and see interesting examples that have come from both garage sales and pawn shops. Bring your own stories!


Prepping for Everyday; Not Doomsday (Time and Place to Be Determined at the Event)

Rick “Native” Wells

Everyone is introduced into preparedness in different ways. Some have experienced a traumatic event like a hurricane or winter storm leading to a power outage. Some have read books by our favorite authors in post-apocalyptic genre. Most just have to watch the news recently and see things that scare them into preparedness. However you were lead to preparedness, the talks and thoughts always go to “Doomsday” events like EMP, Financial collapse or Civil war. Well, this class isn’t about that.

In prepping for every day, we will talk about situations and scenarios that you will more likely come across in your day to day lives. Where do you spend most your time? Are those places stocked for events that can occur daily? How do you get to and from work? Do you have resources to handle events that may happen during your commute? If you have children, do you have resources for them?  We will cover materials and supplies needed to set you up for success in these daily situations. Lastly, we will talk about mindset of daily preparedness. Making preparedness a lifestyle, not a hobby.

Primitive Wilderness Survival Skills

 Richard Cleveland

As preppers, we all know the importance of a well-stocked homestead, but as we know emergencies come in all shapes and sizes. Have you ever considered, having to “Bug Out,” perhaps with very little?

If you don’t have a mask yet you will have an opportunity to buy a high-quality mask at a very substantial savings. This sale is ONLY for Prepper camp and cannot be repeated.

Psychological Warfare Class 

Hakim Isler

Many people underestimate the power of psychology when it comes to survival. Sure we understand that in a tough situation mindset is everything. By now we have all heard the phase “survival mindset,” but what does that mean exactly and how do you really create it or use it? The answers to this are overlooked just like the answers to the various aspects of survival. Beyond a wilderness survival situation that pits a person versus nature there is also a situation  in both a wilderness and urban survival scenario that could put man versus man. This statement normally brings to mind the idea of physical confrontation. How do you physically defend and combat people that want what you have or that want to hurt you? People are always surprised when I inform them that dealing with confrontation is more about the psychological than the physical. The idea that our lives are physical manifestations of our emotional and mental states and therefore how we interact with the world is determined through these aspects, is commonly over looked. As a Psychological Warfare Sergeant in the US Army I saw how powerful Psychological Warfare could be effective in the buildup or destruction of a community. This was especially evident during and after a war which is the epitome of survival situation. People are looking for food, shelter, water, security, and cause. Each one of these aspects is not just a physical need, but a mental and emotional one as  well. Understanding the root cause of these needs gives leverage and to some degree, control. Those who understand how to use this leverage in essence learn to fight without fighting.

 In my classes I help people understand the many dynamics of human emotional and mental defaults and characteristics. Students gain an emotional intelligence that gives them the ability to deal with the angry, needy, desperate, and violent that will be encounters during a short or long term disaster. In addition the goal is to help people understand how not to allow their own weaknesses to trap/be used against them by emotionally intelligent influencers that may seek to take advantage of them. I also show how to identify the psychological aspects of those who are trying to take advantage and those who can be potential allies if you understand who they are and how they operate. Psychological warfare is a powerful tool that is underrated in its importance to help people maintain control, order and safety during a disaster or high risk situation. Those throughout history who knew how to use it wisely found themselves as leaders of countries and sometimes destroyers of communities. The war around you is easier to control if you understand the mindset of the players within it. This is the foundation of Psyop.

as well as escapees.

Secret Garden of Survival- How to Grow a Camouflaged Food-Forest

Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener

Imagine a food garden that you only have to plant once in your life-time, that takes up very little space, that will provide food for you and your family for the next 30 years; that can grow five times more food per square foot than traditional or commercial gardening; and where you never have to weed, never have to use fertilizers and never have to use pesticide– ever.

And the whole garden is disguised to look like overgrown underbrush, so that anyone passing by would not even dream that you had food growing there!

It’s the essential prepper food source that can provide you with all the fruit, vegetables, nuts and berries, that you and your family can consume in a year.


Secret Greenhouse of Survival- How to Build the Ultimate Homestead & Prepper Greenhouse

(This class will now be combined with the Secret Garden of Survival Presentation.)

 Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener

Imagine a greenhouse that heats your home in the winter; and heats your water; that grows five times more food per sq. ft. than a hoop house; that provides food for you and your family all year long; where your food grows in 3 dimensions; where you never have to use fertilizer; where you never have to use pesticide, and where you can grow exotic foods, i.e. citrus or coffee trees in New England); that allows you to start seedlings in the spring; that hides your solar electric system; and that can house your small animals or incubate chickens and ducks.

All disguised to look like a porch on your home, so that desperate and hungry passersby would  have no idea that you have food growing there. 


Secret Livestock of Survival- How to Raise the 10 Best Choices for Retreat and Homestead Livestock

Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener

Protein should be a big portion of your diet in a homestead or retreat situation. Many traditional farm animals are not a good choice for the small homestead or for the prepper trying to remain undetected. (Hint- Roosters crowing are a dead giveaway to your location.) Find out what animals are the least amount of work for you, and give you the highest return on your investment of money, time and resources.  And find out which livestock animals are the most discreet- so they won’t give away your location!

Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE)

David Dietrich

SERE is a training program that prepares U.S. military personnel, U.S. Department of Defense civilians, and private military contractors to survive and “return with honor” in survival scenarios. The curriculum includes survival skills, evading capture, application of the military code of conduct, and techniques for escape from captivity.  A typical scenario involves exiting a vehicle, such as an aircraft or ship.  Egress is followed by running from enemy forces, toward some pre-planned recovery point.  Upon capture, many kinds of interrogation methods may be used to extract useful information from the captive.  Both physical and psychological effects are employed.  Finding the right moment to make your break is critical to fighting another day.  All aspects of SERE may not be used, but a holistic approach provides the best solution.

While prescribed for a military environment, SERE principles can be applied to other circumstances as well, including emergencies resulting from a failure of civility.  Surviving in the woods alone using knowledge of bushcraft is different from protecting your neighborhood group from an attacking gang.  And if those same gang members are pursuing you for your scarce resources, you are in no less danger than from al Qaeda warriors.  You may not be subject to a legal code, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t certain obligations you have to those nearest to you.  And finally, if you are so unfortunate as to be taken by really bad people, then your life may depend on getting away from them as quickly as possible.  Join us for a unique discussion forum.  Perhaps you’ll discover a new formula for your preparedness planning.

Survival Groups and Mutual Assistance Groups (MAGS)

Forrest Garvin, PrepperNet

Your most important prep is being in a survival group! The only people that argue against this are not in a group.  This class will cover: why your “expert” is not in a group, why you need a group, how to find a group, where to find people, what to look for in others, how to talk to others about groups, how groups will change you, how to prepare yourself for a group, how many should you have in your group, how to find an quick bug out location, what due diligence should you do, roles and responsibility in a group.  My survival group has been together for 18 years and I will share information that others have never shared.

The Trained Protection Dog – A Prepper’s Best Friend –And Best Security Asset.

Joel Ryals

Rising crime rates and social unrest are enough to make anyone want to increase their security. Electronic security measures are great…until the electricity goes out. A gun is good, but will it help you when there are multiple attackers? What is the one security asset (with lots of other benefits as well) that can help with multiple attackers, never needs electricity, doesn’t run out of ammunition and will be your best battle buddy till the end? THE DOG.

Come hear the many benefits a dog can add to your security spectrum from how to deal with the reality of a hostile confrontation to what happens to your defensive plans as soon as the fighting starts, to how the dog fills the HUGE gap between fighting with your hands and using deadly force. Do you need Security for you or your family while you’re gone? The dog may be the what you’ve been looking for.


Trapping Game and Predators

Melvin Case

The most upsetting thing for someone going through the trouble, time and effort, to raise their own food, is when you go to pick your bounty, and you find that some varmint has already beaten you to it!

So groundhogs, rabbits, raccoons, opossums, squirrels and the like,  need to be kept in check.

Then there is the beaver that can take a fruit tree that took you years to grow, down in one night !!! They can also flood fields, and block culverts that can washout roads.

And fox, coyote, bobcats, and other predators, can devastate your chickens, ducks, rabbits, and goats in a matter of minutes.

When the SHTF you do not need the added work or loss of your hard earned resources.

And a trapped animal’s meat, fur and leather is an added benefit.

This is a practical trapping class, with hands-on demonstrations, on the ground, by the Back Bayou Tent.

Trauma Tools Workshop

 David Dietrich

This is a hands-on presentation of the primary life-saving tools used by military members and professional first responders in the field.  These purpose-built devices will provide you with the ability to stabilize serious bleeding and breathing injuries before trained responders arrive on the scene.  Without oxygen, a bleeding/breathing victim has about ten minutes to live.  Since the average EMS response time is seven minutes, he has at best a 30% survival rate under normal conditions.  Therefore, every step you take immediately could dramatically increase someone’s chances to live.  The main point is that you don’t have time to wait for someone else to respond and take action.  If you choose to accept it, that responsibility falls on you.

During the workshop, we will discuss the importance of blood to the human body and the impact of serious bleeding on bodily functions.  Then we will consider types of bleeding and the methods of addressing each.  Several tourniquet options will be demonstrated.  We will consider other applications as well, including pressure dressings, chest seals, and clotting agents.  Finally, we will discuss breathing trauma and how to effectively address conditions arising from obstructions and disruptions. Your take away from this workshop will be an increased understanding of your role as a first responder.  And combined with complete trauma kits, as well as the components found at the GetReady! booth, you will be confident in your basic lifesaving ability.

Urban Survival – No Matter What.

Sara Hathaway

This class focuses on steps you can take to protect yourself in an urban environment in today’s society and a disaster scenario. If society maintains its balance, there are still steps you can take to secure your castle. You need defensible space, a plan for when things go wrong, and, yes, proper insurance coverage. Around your home, you have private and public spaces. Can you manage the traffic? When threats, either human-made or natural, are imminent, you have to weigh the decision to stay or go carefully. Knowing you have covered all of your bases before this happens can make this decision much more manageable.

In the event of a collapse, it is essential that you understand how to be a gray man and blend in. You don’t want others to know you are thriving while they are starving. Finding food and water in an urban environment post-collapse takes careful thought now to know what to do then. Your defensive strategies should be covert, and often your best decision may be to blend into a mob rather than fight the tide. You will need strength in numbers. A family of four can’t defend itself in an urban landscape. After attending this class, you will understand how to survive in an urban environment today and tomorrow.

Using a Stick for Combat -101 

Hakim Isler

There are two basic weapons that have been around since the dawn of time and they are the Stick and the rock.

Rocks are cool but once you throw them away they can’t aid you anymore.

Sticks or stick like objects are things that you will commonly carry or be able to find in most environments.

Using a stick properly is something that is not as easy as you think. It takes an understanding of range, targeting and full body movement.

Whether a broom, umbrella, cane or hiking stick, once you learn effective combat with this tool you will be able to improvise a weapon in a multitude of scenarios.

We will cover common strikes, avoidances, basic footwork and counter strikes that will give you a clear upper hand when using a using any type of staff like object for defense.

There is no experience needed to take this class and all fitness levels are welcomed as the movements will be efficient. Don’t miss out on Stick combat 101 – Basic Tools for Winning Non-projectile engagements.

Utilizing Fibers For Homesteading and Survival

Jordan Smith

Fiber, such as wool, is a resource that people pay little attention to in today’s time.  Natural fiber items are even less understood and almost considered an oddity with the number of synthetic products now in circulation. Having the ability and skill to make your own clothing could make or break a family or group during tough time. Gloves, hats, shirts, sweaters, underwear everyday things that we take for granted could have a huge impact on our lives and make an individual quite vulnerable.

This class will discuss the sources in which fibers come from, be it animal, plant or even insect. This will cover many of the main types of sources and the multiple uses for them in the prepper and homesteading lifestyle. 

You will get to see first-hand the type of equipment that are ideal.  As well as getting to see and handle some of the fibers up-close. I will also present and show how these fibers can be used and handled in its final process.   You will leave with simple set of plans to build your own drop spindle. We will also discuss the how to begin in your new fiber adventure.

This class will allow you to walk away with a whole new view on this great resource.

Your Body Is A Weapon – Everybody’s Self Defense Class

Sara Hathaway

Your body is your number one weapon. There are numerous circumstances where your body may be your last line of defense, and you need to be ready to protect yourself. This class focuses on every age group, any sex, and any fitness level. We begin with the background basics of fitness, concentrating on improving that readiness level. Advancing to the next stage should always be the goal. During the class, we will discuss proper nutrition for maintaining an adequate preparedness level. Pain is an excuse for many individuals, so we will explore methods for reducing pain and inflammation that can hold an individual back.

Then we will explore how appearance and situational awareness can make or break you in a self-defense situation. It is essential to know your limits due to your age and prior fitness levels. You need to be able to assess your opponents’ abilities based upon their age and appearance. Knowing how to handle adrenal stress and getting practice at controlling the body’s response is another critical aspect we will explore. Then we will learn some useful tips on how to escape and evade an abduction. Plus, explore the basics of wielding and defending against a bladed weapon attack. Finally, we get into some hands-on practice focusing on learning a few moves very well rather than many movements, not so well.

The instructor, Sara Hathaway, grew up a country girl, shooting rifles and bowhunting. She began training martial arts in 2002 in a form called Kuk Sool Won. A fellow student introduced her to the sport of Taekwondo. Her training continued in the disciplines of Kuk Sool Won, Kukkiwon style Taekwondo and Moo Duk Kwon style Taekwondo. In 2007 Sara earned her black belt from Master Instructor John Jonghan Yi. As an individual concerned about disaster preparedness and self-defense, she realized Taekwondo was much more than a sport, and in 2010 she began training with Chief Master Dan Lovas at The Auburn Martial Arts Center. Sara trained off and on at the studio during the next few years and obtained her third-degree blackbelt in Taekwondo. During this time, she also participated in close quarters combat training with a private instructor, Doug Huffman. Sara has become one of six women ever to pass Dan Lovas’s jujitsu test and trained Sport-jujitsu as well. Currently, Sara is training in MMA at Precision Jujitsu, concentrating that training on street fighting rather than cage fighting.

The New Calendar

Sherman calendar  Sherman calendar 2 sherman fall out shelter

So you’ve got your supplies, your rice, your guns, and your homestead. But when society collapses, who’s going to print you a new calendar every year? Society is built around the calendar and concept of time, so when SHTF better have time on your side. Resources will be scarce, so the ability to re-print another Gregorian Calendar every year on a 6-11-11 year cycle will be a luxury few will have. You need a re-usable, sustainable system that keeps you naturally attuned to the Earth’s annual orbital rotation. You need the latest, most cutting edge scientific technological developments in the field of timekeeping. You need The New Calendar. American Engineered in 2017, not mandated by the Pope in 1582.

There is a reason a ruler is a word meaning both a measurement device and a king. After SHTF make sure you control time, or someone else will. Don’t rely on the Gregorian Calendar to get you through the collapse of society — its part of the problem that got us in this mess! The New Calendar is the ONLY APOCALYPSE-PROOF calendar system available! It’s re-usable, provides consistent, precise and accurate measurements, and contains useful information to aid your homestead operations and survival organization.  

We also have a cache of vintage 1960’s “Fall-Out Shelter” signs.

Timothy French Publishing/ Americans Networking to Survive

 French book French head

Timothy French is the author of “Every Yard Is A Grave,” a post-apocalyptic novella, and the founder of Americans Networking To Survive. He will be promoting both at his Prepper Camp booth, so come by and say hello.

A.N.T.S is a network of neighbors helping neighbors. When disaster strikes, we support our members in the cities, towns, and states around us by relaying supply pods to any member that needs them.

In “Every Yard Is A Grave,” IT HAPPENED. Yellowstone erupted, and the remaining families of Beech Mountain, North Carolina, are trying to survive a years-long volcanic winter, and they are almost out of food. Gone are the days when you could walk into a grocery store to buy what you need; money is useless. Food is the only thing of value, and it’s not for sale; people who have it intend to keep it, and those that don’t intend to take it away. It’s the only thing people think about anymore. To not have it is to die.

Van Sickel Books-  Timothy Van Sickel – Author

Van Sickle books Van Sickle boat

Tim Van Sickel is a Christian, husband, stepfather and grandfather. He is also a businessman and is active in his church. He grew up in Pittsburgh and currently resides in Johnstown, PA. He is a lifelong avid reader, and keeps informed of current events. He spent eight years as an infantry officer in the National Guard and is a graduate of Penn State University. He is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying both hunting and fishing. 

He has desired to write a book in the post-apocalyptic genre for several years, but could never get the setting right. In late winter of 2016, the right venue was revealed to Tim, and in his words, “God inspired me to right this novel.” Before that day was over, the main characters had been developed and the story line was set. He wrote the first chapter that night and has not quit writing since. Tim has invested the time and expense of having his books professionally edited. You will find his works captivating and challenging in their realism. You will literally think, “My God, this could really happen,” as you read this descriptive saga of societal collapse after an EMP strike.

Prepper Press – Aden Tate – Author

The Faithful Prepper cover Aden Tate Zombie Choices 03

Aden Tate is a part-time farmer – specializing in eggs, greens, and oyster mushrooms – and a writer when he’s not tending to livestock and crops. He’s a fan of Joel Salatin’s views on farming, Victor Hugo’s novels, and American history when it’s not written by revisionists.

Aden will be releasing his new work of fiction Zombie Choices: An Interactive Story for $15 at Prepper Camp 2020. Think of it as a video game in a book. If you’re familiar with (and liked) the old text-based adventure Oregon Trail, then there’s a good chance that you’ll enjoy Zombie Choices. Aden Tate is also the author of The Faithful Prepper: A Christian’s Perspective on Prepping, which takes a look at how prepping meshes with the Christian faith, examines whether or not prepping is a lack of faith in God, and looks at a number of other post-disaster scenarios.

Survivor Jane – Author,

 SurvivorJane What Could Go Wrong Cover SJ new book Puzzle cover graphic 1

Survivor Jane is city-girl turned prepper/homesteader – moving to the Appalachian Mountains from Central Florida. She is the creator and editor of the survival preparedness website with a mission to educate others on how to better be prepared, by sharing her experiences and research in an easy to understand conversational format on various preparedness topics.

After noticing what seemed to be a lack of focus in personal hygiene and cleanliness in other’s preparedness plans, Jane authored the “Survivor Jane’s Guide to: Emergency/Survival Hygiene – A Prepper Cookbook on Making Survival Hygiene Products”.

In her new book, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong??? – How to Go from Completely Clueless to Totally Prepared” Jane’s focus is on the normalcy bias of women in today’s society and how they can overcome this bias (although the book can certainly apply to anyone.)

You can buy Jane’s books on amazon, and also at Aden Tate’s Prepper Press at Prepper Camp.

To find out more about Jane or to contact her go to her website ( ) for all her book and contact links.

Rick Austin the Survivalist Gardener, Secret Garden of Survival

Rick in Secret Garden of Survival 2a Garden book greenhouse book livestock book

Secret Garden of Survival-How to grow a camouflaged food-forest.

Imagine a food garden that you only have to plant once in your life-time, that takes up very little space, that will provide food for you and your family for the next 30 years; that can grow five times more food per square foot than traditional or commercial gardening; and where you never have to weed, never have to use fertilizers and never have to use pesticide– ever.

And the whole garden is disguised to look like overgrown underbrush, so that anyone passing by would not even dream that you had food growing there!

Find out how Rick Austin took a half-acre southern slope in North Carolina and turned it from red clay into a “food forest” in one year.

Secret Greenhouse of Survival-How to Build the Ultimate Homestead & Prepper Greenhouse.

This is the ultimate sustainable greenhouse, but purposely doesn’t look like it.

Imagine a greenhouse that heats your home in the winter; and heats your home’s water; that grows five times more food per sq. ft. than a hoop house; that provides food for you and your family all year long; where your food grows in 3 dimensions; where you never have to use fertilizer; where you never have to use pesticide, and where you can grow exotic foods, i.e. citrus or coffee trees in New England); that allows you to start seedlings in the spring; that hides your solar electric system; and that can house your small animals or incubate chickens and ducks.

 All disguised to look like a porch on your home, so that desperate and hungry passersby would have no idea that you have food growing there.

Find out how you can build a greenhouse that does all that.

Secret Livestock of Survival – How to Raise the Very Best Choices for Retreat and Homestead Livestock.

When most people think of raising homestead livestock, they invariably think that they must have chickens and a cow. But truth be told, when it comes to raising livestock, there are a lot of reasons to avoid raising chickens altogether, and almost every reason not to own a cow. 

Just like in my previous two books in this series (the Secret Garden of Survival and the Secret Greenhouse of Survival), this new book, the Secret Livestock of Survival, will show you how to grow your own sources of food (in this case- protein), with a much better return on your investment of time, money, feed, housing and real estate, than with traditional homestead thinking. And these livestock animals are discrete, so most people won’t even know you are raising them.

If you are serious about raising livestock, whether you are an existing homesteader, or just getting started, this book will save you many hundreds of times what it costs you to buy. (And the information contained in this book, can easily replace the need for you to buy about 10 other livestock books.)

All these books are available on, or at the Prepper Press Booth here at Prepper Camp.
