MidAtlantic Outdoor School's mission is to make the wilderness accessible to everyone. Let's get outdoors!
My passion is to teach the necessary skills so everyone can enjoy everything the wilderness has to offer. I teach practical skills to keep you and your loved ones safe for your next outdoor adventure.
My goal is to introduce you to skills including, emergency preparedness and how to get the most out of your camping adventure. By learning four basic principles - fire, shelter, safety, water - you will learn how to handle yourself in any situation.
What you won't learn: doomsday prepping, extended length wilderness survival, zombie prep or hunting.
Hi! I'm Janna, the founder of MidAtlantic Outdoor School. I am a lifelong outdoor enthusiast. My love for primitive camping and hiking began when I was a summer camp counselor at a rustic co-ed camp. From there, I began taking hikes and camping trips with friends and family. I have developed my outdoor skills through years of making mistakes and learning, as well as through courses with wilderness experts.
Many years ago, my inexperience got me lost on a trail for 14 hours in the middle of August in the blinding sun without the proper supplies. When I returned, I vowed never to let that happen again. I now have education and certifications under my belt so I can also help you enjoy the outdoors safely!
