Wilderness First Aid Training is a valuable and needed skill for today’s youth and adult Scouting leaders, and is required for those attending BSA High Adventure Bases and other outdoor settings more than 30 minutes from emergency services.  This 16-hour first aid course for backcountry situations includes first aid skills and practice, plus leadership training for how to handle group dynamics while on trek.  Be prepared for indoor classroom training with outdoor practice scenarios.  Dress in non-uniform outdoor apparel (layers) appropriate for the weather, and bring your backpack as if prepared for a trek. You should include a backpack tent and sleeping gear for Friday's overnighter.

CPR certification is a prerequisite to taking the Wilderness First Aid training, and is NOT included in this course offering. 

Wilderness First Aid training is open to all BSA adults and all BSA youth 14 or older (who are recommended by their unit leader or high adventure crew).  All participants must have a solid working knowledge and proficiency in all first aid requirements (First Aid Merit Badge is highly recommended).

Location: All sessions will be conducted at: Howard Lodge & Boyd Shelter, Camp Berry

Please bring BSA health form A, B &C.
