Wilderness First Aid

This course, accredited through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) is developed to specifically meet the requirements for the BSA High Adventure Bases. This is a blended program which will require the participant to complete an online portion PRIOR to merit badge weekend. This should take approximately 6 to eight hours to complete. In order to complete your certification you must attend the eight hour skills class to be held at the merit badge weekend.

This course is for youth and adults and will be an additional $75.
