But of course. Southeast craft/DIY hub ADX recently announced the launch of Camp ADX, a series of weekly events geared toward teaching adults to make the supplies they need to survive any imminent apocalypse, whether of the economic, environmental, or zombie variety:

Join Troop 417 at Camp ADX every Wednesday evening this summer for hands-on, how-to training on making your own DIY survival tools and you'll be more prepared!

So, if you're a paranoid sort of adult who would rather make a backback than buy it at REI, look no further. Other how-to-makes include fishing poles, radios, and booze. The series runs Wednesdays at 6, starting this week; it's $10 for ADX members, $20 for nonmembers. More details here.
