One of the frustrations with being a prepper is that it can be difficult to find other like-minded people. It’s not exactly something that is common to bring up in the casual small talk. And if you go looking online for Survival Groups and Communities For Preppers, it’s a challenge to sort through the clutter and noise to find quality groups.
But it’s important to find other preppers and survivalists to spend time with. Collaborating with each other on what’s worked for them, what hasn’t. You can bounce ideas off of each other. There are numerous benefits to finding others to learn from and so you can teach them a thing or two as well.
Here’s what we cover in this post below.
- Where Preppers can hang out with like-minded people.
- Different platforms for interaction.
- Subreddits for survival related topics.
- Best Facebook Groups for preppers.
- Best forums on survival and preparedness
Best Online Survivalist Groups For Preppers
One of the most common things preppers struggle with is finding good places where preppers can hang out online.
We won’t be talking about the best Survival blogs that are out there. Even though some of them have a comments section and can be considered a private group of discussion. This post is about places that are specifically for communicating with each other.
You have more than enough options for what kind of interaction you want if you’re looking for something specific. Here are the kinds of communities we’ll cover in this post.
- Online groups
- Facebook groups
We’ll start off with Reddit.
Love it or hate it. Reddit has many communities for survival and preparedness-minded people.
What is a subreddit?
If you’re not familiar with Reddit, Reddit has different groups of discussions called subreddits. There a many subreddits for survival minded people
Here is a list of all the subreddits related to survival and preparedness.
If you know any other subreddits that you like and think other preppers will benefit from, let us know in the comments and we’ll add it to the list.
Top Prepper Facebook Groups
There are a massive amount of Survival Facebook groups.
So we made criteria that each group needs to meet for the ones we would list here for you.
- Must be large.
- Must be active daily.
- Must not contain a lot of spam.
- Must be real adult preppers sharing valuable ideas and insights.
- Must require permission to join the group. This at least allows there to be some barrier of entry to keep more non-serious preppers and time wasters out.
It’s not perfect criteria but it gets the job done when searching through the noise for quality groups to join. Here are a few that meet these criteria that I liked.
