 The 3-day Old School Survival Boot Camp event passes will not be sold at the door. Tickets must be purchased online prior to the event date.

A general admission ticket is all that is required to spend 3 days at the Old School Survival Boot Camp event. Add-on experience tickets at the gun range or Raccoon Creek Outfitters are offered as an event extension option for attendees who are interested in honing their firearms and watercraft skills. You can opt to reserve camping or RV sites at the fairgrounds, Raccoon Creek Outfitters, or at other local cabin and camping rentals or travel to the event daily if you live within driving distance.

You do not have to purchase the 3-day passes for adults or children at the same time as purchasing add-on experiences tickets, on-site camping, or official boot camp gear through our Ticketbud event page. You may return at a later date to purchase any add-ons to the general admission tickets - while spaces are available and while gear lasts.

By purchasing any Old School Survival Boot Camp general admission, add-on experience ticket, or camping reservation you have completely read, understand, and agree to our terms of service. If you have not read, understood, or cannot agree to the terms of service, DO NOT purchase a ticket to the event, purchase gear, or reserve camping through our event ticket service.

The Old School Survival Boot Camp is primarily an outdoor event - dress and accessorize accordingly. The 3-day survival event will go on rain or shine - including all courses that take place indoors, under event tents, or in wooded and open areas on the grounds. Activities will only be halted for lightening or similar potentially deadly weather or natural disaster emergencies.

Old School Survival Boot Camp Handicap Accessibility

This is an outdoor event where uneven terrain and off pavement conditions should be expected to be encountered. Rain before or during the event may make some areas difficult or impossible to traverse by wheelchair. 

The road through the main event venue is a combination of gravel and dirt that is usually passable by a wheelchair, but weather conditions could alter passable conditions. All barns, buildings, and permanent restrooms are handicap accessible.

There are roughly 20 handicap parking spots in the heart of the main event venue. These will be used daily on a first come first serve basis. If an attendee alerts event staff at the front gate that all handicap accessible parking spaces are taken, a drop off to the main event building or as near as possible to an event area will be permitted. 

Please contact us via email with any specific questions or concerns about handicap accessibility prior to purchasing a non-refundable ticket or during the event in the case of inclement weather that may alter accessibility conditions at the outdoor event.
