High Adventure Wilderness First Aid Training for Scouts and Scouters Done Right!
Sam Houston Area Council’s BSA Crew-911is nationally known for our American Red Cross training programs for Scouts and Scouters! We are offering two American Red Cross WaRFA Wilderness and Remote First Aid programs this spring:

April 30, May 1, 2016 Saturday/Sunday – Lost Pines Scout Reservation near Bastrop, Texas

Fees are $95.00/person including overnight accommodations/camping and all meals beginning with Saturday lunch. We have an optional program Friday evening for our youth participants. Camping is available Friday night for those with long travel distances.

All youth participants must be fourteen or older “by the last scheduled class meeting” or registered Venturers/Sea Scouts. Current Adult CPR/AED Training from a approved nationally recognized training agency is a prerequisite.

Complete details will be provided with your registration packet.

Please consider taking Wilderness and Remote First Aid with your youth members.

The BSA requirement is two members trained but the recommendation is for all trek members to be trained, youth and adult. A High Adventure trip is serious fun for you and your Scouts BUT an accident when professional care is hours away creates a serious emergency. Train with your youth so you are prepared. The victim might just be you and “just meeting the minimum level of training” isn’t the best plan!
