Wilderness First Aid at Summer Camp
I'll be presenting Wilderness First Aid Basics to scouts at summer camp in July. Camp Many Point is starting a new "All Things Emergency Response" program for one week this summer. I'm fortunate to be a part of the new program and hope it is a big success to continue and grow. There's currently 10 scouts signed up so it's off to a good start.

The local sheriff's office and Mounted Search & Rescue teams are scheduled to present their programs to the scouts, too. I just saw the outline for the week and it's packed with activities and surprises. The scouts get to participate in mock sea rescues, ice rescues, lost hikers, airplane crash, and a mess of various wounds and evacuation drills.

At the end of the week, scouts will have CPR certification, WFAB certification, Emergency Preparedness and Safety merit badges, and experience in many emergency scenarios.

There is a video about the program, but it's a little long.
