WINNIPEG, Manitoba (CNN/CTV NETWORK) — A Canadian zombie survival camp is offering a three-day crash course in surviving an attack from the undead. The organizers have taken over a Christmas tree farm in Winnipeg, turning it into “ground zero” of a zombie attack. The camp combines survivalist training with zombie combat.

It teaches campers how to dress a zombie bite wound, outrun the walking dead and stab a zombie. One participant says in the worst-case scenario, she’d sacrifice herself for her friend.

“We have been friends since we were in elementary school, so I would let the zombie kill me to save her,” said Jen Fehr.

“Oh, and likewise,” said Ashley Voth.

“Oh, yay!” said Fehr.

Campers also learn skills like archery,,zombie-jitsu, resource-gathering and crisis management.
