Wilderness Advanced First Aid @ Blackwood Educational Land Institute
Jun 2 – Jun 5 all-day

Whether you’re planning a wild adventure this summer or just want to feel prepared in case of emergency (aka Houston hurricanes), WAFA is for you.

Spend time on our 33-acres, learning the ins-and-outs of wilderness emergency medicine. This year, we’re also excited to offer a WFR bridge course. If you’ve taken our WAFA course in the past, this summer you can “level-up” to learn new protocols and study with Tim all over again.

WAFA || June 2 – June 5 || $475 until May 1
WFR Bridge || June 6 – June 9 || $475 until May 1

Our senior camp counselors required to take this course and we subsidize course fees for our younger counselors. We think that everyone should be trained because the lessons learned in immediate care come in handy across all facets of our lives.

Register today and feel prepared to meet life’s unexpected bumps with ease.
