Find a 2-Day Event | Escape The Woods

Find a 2-Day Event



The Escape the Woods Challenge is designed to be a two person team experience. You will learn more, remember more, achieve more and have more fun with a teammate. If you simply can’t find one for the day of the event and still want to participate you can definitely show up and fly solo. OR if you are real brave, you can find another “lone wolf” at the event to be your partner for the weekend. 

Limited-Time Special Pricing

1 Adult: $79


We are excited to announce our new “Home Base” location.  We have purchased a fully wooded hideout in Central Ohio about 45 minutes north of Columbus.  This location will allow us to host more frequent events and do some crazy things some venues frown upon!


Next event:  June 13, 2020 in Central Ohio

Participants can show up as early as 5 p.m. on Friday to set up their tents/ hammocks/ campsite.  Registration is 9-10 am Saturday morning. Event begins at 10:30 AM on Saturday and runs through 6:30 PM.   Dinner and fun from 6:30 pm-10PM. Main competition begins at 8AM Sunday and the event ends at Noon on Sunday. Participants will be responsible for meals and snacks. We have found that the evenings are a great time for the participants to gather, cook food over a fire while they discuss what they have learned and make new friends.  Remember, food is a big part of survival so plan well and be willing to share your ideas with others. Escape the Woods is a RAIN or SHINE event!


What?  Survival is not a spectator sport, soldier!  You can watch a baseball game or T.V.  but Escape the Woods is only for participants.  Well, that was harsh.
