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.
Tickets are NON REFUNDABLE, but you can gift or sell your tickets if you find yourself unable to attend the event. Should Ohio be on any type of Covid-19 restrictions during the Old School Survival Boot Camp weekend, the event will be structured to comply with any and all restrictions. Should large outdoor gatherings be prohibited during the Old School Survival Boot Camp weekend, the event will be rescheduled and raincheck tickets issued for the new date.
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.
