Wilderness First Aid

High Adventure is a core feature of Scouting. Even more important is having that adventure in a safe manner. That’s why Wilderness First Aid is required for leaders involved in these programs. This conference will teach you those skills, including opportunities to practice scenarios in Philmont’s backcountry AND even more importantly, will teach you how to teach. This is an opportunity to become a qualified instructor capable of training others in your area in Wilderness First Aid. This will be a great benefit to the Scouters in your Council. Prior training as an instructor is valuable and recommended, but not a prerequisite. Certification from ESCI.
