Wilderness First AidWilderness First Aid 2017


Learn about the new practices that go way beyond what Scouting leaders may already know as "first aid." This will help you cope with medical emergencies in the wild and perhaps more importantly, to be a more effective manager in any crisis.


This course is a BSA Policy Requirement. As of 2008, the requirement is for at least one leader in each group, not just unit, must have this certification for high adventure camps. So, if your unit has a trek that will be broken into multiple groups you will need one leader per group trained.


TIME: 8 a.m.-5 p.m.


DATE: December 27-28, 2017 (both days required)


PLACE: Camp Karankawa, 3249 FM 1459 Rd., Sweeny, TX 77480
