WILDERNESS FIRST AID CLASS OFFERED!!

The Los Padres Council is pleased to once again offer a Wilderness First Aid Course.  This course is now required for all units that attend one of the National High Adventure Base Programs (Philmont, Sea Base, Northern Tier).  It is also a great course to take for all units that are going on a backcountry trip this summer and beyond.

Wilderness First Aid is invaluable to you, the unit or trek leader, as it goes well beyond your basic first aid.  When you are hours from available emergency medical services, you will be really thankful that you took this course!  This course is 18 hours in length, but invaluable in the resources you will learn to use.

The course will be held at Camp Arroyo Grande on Friday, April 13, 2018 from 3 PM to 10 PM and Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 8 AM to 9 PM.  Yes, these are long hours, but will not impact your Sunday obligations.   You will stay overnight at Camp Arroyo Grande (in their facilities, so just bring sleeping bag and pad,  and personal gear), have dinner on Friday evening, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday.  Additional information will be provided in a welcome letter after  you register.

A pre-requisite for the course is current (within the past two years) certification in Adult CPR and AED (automatic external defibrillator).  You will need to bring a copy of your card to the course

Costs for the Wilderness First Aid course:  Los Padres Council Scouters $275 per person; Non Los Padres Council Scouters:  $300; Non-scout community members $350.  Costs include the course, course materials, certification card, lodging and meals.  (Thanks to a grant from our National Office, we are able to offer this course at this greatly reduced price.)  PLEASE NOTE THE MINIMUM AGE FOR THE COURSE IS 16.

THE COURSE IS LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS.  PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO LOS PADRES COUNCIL SCOUTERS FIRST, THEN OTHER COUNCIL SCOUTERS, THEN NON-SCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS

REGISTRATION MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY MARCH 23, 2018

You must attend all course sessions and participate fully - this is a physically demanding course.
