About Us

Southern Oregon Survival provides free monthly classes to the public. These events allow people to gain new preparedness skills while meeting and networking with other like-minded individuals in a non-judgmental environment.

Our goal is to educate and motivate people enough to want to start their own meetings and spread the knowledge. Whether you're a beginner or veteran survivalist, you can gain new knowledge or refresh your skills at every class. You may even have valuable information you can pass along to others.

All ages are welcome but please keep in mind the subject matter. Some issues that come up may be too advanced or scary for some children.

Where: Fruitdale Grange, 1440 Parkdale Dr, Grants Pass, OR 97527 (Across the street from Grover's Electric and Plumbing)

When: Every 3rd Saturday of every month

Time: 4:00-5:45 pm

Cost: FREE, but a donation of $2 per person would be greatly appreciated to pay for the room fees.

Every month we discuss one topic from the Emergency Preparedness Plan. You can find a blank plan by clicking here.  Please print one up and bring it with you to every class.

We begin in January with the first topic and end in December with a potluck but feel free to start the classes at any time. We hope to see you there!
