November 10-12, Cabin Trip, Wilderness First Aid at Mohican Outdoor Center, Blairstown NJ
This is an offer that will only be extended to active Campers‘ Group members, especially if you backpack or car-camp with us. Campers’ Group will be subsidizing the cost of this trip for a select group of active campers, which includes the Wilderness First Aid Course, lodging and meals Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.
The Wilderness First Aid (WFA) course will teach you how to deal with common medical incidents and accidents that occur in the backcountry. It stresses safety, preparation, crisis avoidance, and the treatment of problems such as blisters, sprains, hypothermia, heat disorders, protection from the elements and more. This course does not go into the depth that the Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course does; however it does provide an important level of understanding about recognizing and treating medical emergencies or injuries. This course also discusses long-term patient care, a reality of backcountry travel. The WFA is a 16-hour course and can be used to re-certify a WFR level of training for an additional $15 fee paid directly to SOLO. CPR certification can be obtained for $35.00 during the course, payment by check or credit only. Please let Mohican Outdoor Center staff know if you desire this training prior to course start date. Cost includes Friday and Saturday night lodging and meals. Questions about Camp Mohican call 908-362-5670. Questions about the program please contact SOLO 603-447-6711. Full price, subsidized by Campers‘ Group: Member/Non-Member - $330.00* (NJ State taxes not included).
*Includes Wilderness First Aid Course, Friday and Saturday lodging, casual Friday dinner buffet 6-8 p.m., Saturday breakfast and dinner, trail lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
*** Those that take the course agree to co-host at least one trip for Campers‘ Group in the future, and to use the skills (or provide instruction) they have learned during the wilderness first aid course.***
