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.
