Combined with current CPR certification (which must be taken separately) this class provides the training needed when you are 30 minutes or more from response by Emergency Medical Services.

A person trained in wilderness first aid must accompany Girl Scouts for international travel. Check Safety Activity Checkpoints for information on activities that require a Wilderness First Aider.

Wilderness First Aid class focuses on practicing first aid skills in a wilderness setting and includes patient assessment, shock and bleeding, head and spinal injuries, wounds, burns, musculoskeletal injuries, and heat and cold injuries. This 16-hour class takes place over two consecutive days and is a must for all going on international travel, backpackers, and high adventure enthusiasts! Limited financial assistance is available for adults. Currently scheduled courses will provide American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid certification.

Note: You must bring your current CPR certificate with you. Girls must be 16 years of age or older.

You must attend both days. This is not an overnight event. Registration will close on May 15 at 5:00 p.m.
