In the Northwest, Wilderness Awareness School near Seattle is probably the best option, whether for a weekend, a year, or through self-study. http://wildernessawareness.org/ Mark Elbroch's tracking books are quite good.

One place to start is FM 21-76 US ARMY SURVIVAL MANUAL, which you can find for free in various electronic formats.

Trackers seems to be a camp, which I may not be able to make.

The book Camping and Woodcraft looks interesting, a reprint of lore from a century ago. Have you used this yourself, Joshuaw?

If you're on the West Coast, Trackers (http://trackersnw.com/blog/index.php) are the place to go. There are others, including bigger and better funded operations, but Trackers have an amazing wealth of knowledge, a love of what they do, and a focus on pedagogy and sharing their skills that is outstanding. They cover everything from wilderness survival to crafting, from marine to mycology.
