Hot on the heels of our recent discovery that Portland-based camping and survival organization, Trackers Earth, will be offering a Hellboy and B.P.R.D. themed training camp for children this summer is the realization that they will also offer Zombie Survival Training for individuals of all ages. That’s right, buy your plane ticket and get ready for a trip to Oregon, because you can soon learn how to prepare yourself for when the apocalypse hits. Find out more after the jump.
Trackers Earth seems to have put together another stellar themed survival and training course for zombie fanatics. Like B.P.R.D. Training Camp, Zombie Survival Training is built around actual survival techniques the group offers in their normal programs, but with the added twist of applying them within a world where a zombie apocalypse can take place. The children’s version of the camp is held in August and focuses largely on survival basics like gathering food and shelter. The adult version is held this March with a special emphasis on “protecting your clan” (someone inform Rick Grimes of this, please).
Check out some more details of the camp below, and head to the Trackers Earth website to check out a cool video of how the camp plays out:

Welcome to Training CampZ. Here you will learn all the essentials you need to survive in a world fast being overrun by zombies. We offer courses for both the youth and adult of this post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland. Each course is taught by seasoned experts who have fought on the frontlines of the zombie epidemic.
With The Walking Dead a huge television hit, and zombies now a hot genre for entertainment, I think a zombie-themed survival camp is a great idea and should be well received. It’s just a shame this training is only limited to Portland residents. Doesn’t the rest of the country need to be ready too?
If you know of any other zombie survival courses being held, let us know in the comments section below. The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 12.
