Preparation for Florida Sea Base Sailing Wilderness First Aid

The following advanced programs are offered at or through the Aquatics Base:

Lifeguard Training

The Boy Scouts of America strongly recommends all units have at least one adult or older youth member currently trained as a BSA Lifeguard to assist in the planning and conduct of all swimming activity. This is your opportunity to earn both BSA Lifeguard and American Red Cross Lifeguarding in just two weekends. Any youth (15 years or older) or adult (male or female) registered with BSA is welcome to participate.

Preparation for Northern Tier Canoeing

In this exciting program you'll learn how to portage canoes and equipment to different lakes, receive first aid and survival training for use in the wilderness, learn what gear to bring and how to pack it... all from staff members who have been to the Northern Tier Bases!

Wilderness First Aid

Are you out on a hike or sail where a call to 911 is impossible? Are you out of cell range or more than 2 hours from help? How good are your first aid skills in a wilderness medical emergency?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then plan on coming out in March or October for Basic Wilderness First Aid training. High adventure Philmont crews must have this training. It's strongly recommended for Northern Tier and Sea Base crews, and for weekend hikers on the Appalachian Trail or in the Cohutta Wilderness. You'll learn more than what is taught in basic first aid classes oriented toward everyday, community settings.

A well-trained adult Scouter or Scout with the first aid skills taught at this course should be an asset to any crew, troop or team. Local troops should consider sponsoring their high adventure crew leaders. Open to Scouting/Venturing youth 14 and older and to adult Scouters.
