The outline for this class is simple—there is none. That”s right, no regimented outline of instruction, no unifying theme; instead, the students pick what they want to learn. One day you may be studying concentric rings, the next, tracking, the next, survival and awareness, and the next, philosophy. You may wander through the Pine Barrens, visit old camps of Grandfather”s, or listen as Tom relates parables and stories at one of the many sacred sights in and around the Primitive Camp. Essentially, you will be taught just as Grandfather taught Tom, with no rush, no time schedules, and no restrictions. If you were to ask many of Tom”s past students, you would find that the Ultimate class is by far their favorite. Why the name "Ultimate"? Simply because this is a class that reaches everyone, no matter how many, or how few, Tracker courses you have taken in the past.

Volunteers are a vital part of making each class a success. Having graduates of a class available to answer questions and help out in workshops is of tremendous value to current students, and provides a much larger pool of people they can turn to for assistance. As well, volunteers help to prepare and serve meals, head up the student crews and assist Instructors and Interns in lecture and workshop preparation - all of which are essential when it comes to keeping classes running smoothly. And don't forget, whenever you're not needed as a helper, we encourage you to sit in on the lectures and participate in the exercises and workshops. It's a great way to brush up on your skills, or discover what you may have missed the first time around!
