We are excited to announce a new opportunity coming this June! 

Ever want advanced training in the art of Wilderness first aid? The Mountaineer Area Council (MAC) in conjunction with the Mountaineer Area Rescue Group (MARG) will be putting on this 16 Hour training following the BSA Wilderness First Aid curriculum.

The course will be June 2 and 3, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Lunch will be provided. 

Wilderness First Aid training is required for contingents going to BSA High Adventure bases and is recommended for all leaders who take groups into areas where emergency services are delayed. This course is intended for adults and senior youth, assuming the ability to perform First-Aid Merit Badge-level skills.

The cost of Wilderness First Aid classes can approach $500, but you can receive the training, the materials, lunch, and the certification for $160!

Registration and prepayment are due to the Council Scout Office by May 20th
