Wilderness First Aid class
MEDIC Solo Wilderness Medicine School is hosting a WFA course Sept 2-4. 2017 at the Mountain Lake Biological Station in Pembroke, VA
UNIQUE BONUS – THIS CLASS ONLY – AMOUNTAIN-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 3days 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!
>> TIMING: This is a 3-day class, Saturday through Monday (Labor Day) September 2 – 4, starting at 8am each day. Each day will end at a different time; on Labor Day we’ll finish the course at 3:30pm.
