Mountain-Top Retreat: Disaster+Travel+Wilderness First Aid Course

UNIQUE BONUS – THIS CLASS ONLY – A MOUNTAIN-TOP WEEKEND RETREAT! (This class normally is crammed into 2 packed days 8:30am – 6:45pm. The most common feedback is folks wish it were spread out over 3 days. This is the ONLY opportunity this year to do exactly that. This will be one of the most enjoyable course experiences all year long. By spreading it out over 3 days and at this beautiful location, we will enjoy:

> Longer lunch breaks, beside a lake with a sandy beach and free boat(s) to paddle

> Late afternoons off, to explore on-site trails, take a dip, relax on the beach, etc.

> Evening cookouts

> Sunset short hike to a beautiful Appalachian Trail rock outcropping

> Night-time big campfire circle fun

> Optional CPR class, and optional super-cheap lodging (see below)

> All up at an elevation of 3,800 feet in a beautiful mountain-top setting.

This weekend will be enriching and fun on so many levels!


Hands-on learn how to save life & limb, when mired in the wilderness of an urban disaster zone, travel or rural area far from hospital, or natural area miles from an access point, during the critical minutes or hours before ambulance arrival. Blend of classroom instruction and hands-on problem-solving rescue scenario practice. Come away with actual do-it-yourself care-giving skill and confidence, and 2-year SOLO certification. Counts as WFR Recertification, too. No prerequisites.
