SOLO Wilderness First Aid

Saturday, September 9th — Sunday, September 10th

Wilderness First Aid (WFA) creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. This sixteen hour course focuses on basic skills necessary for responding to emergencies in the backcountry. We’ll cover response and assessment, survival skills, musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries, environmental emergencies, and medical emergencies.

This is an incredible course for teens and adults, not only will you gain the skills you need to care for people in remote locations, you will also have a fantastic time learning!

Fun and fast-moving, there will be a mix of classroom sessions, practice sessions and outdoor scenarios. Check out some of North Star Adventure’s program reviews!

Instructor Nancy Zane has more than 25 years of experience working, teaching, and playing in remote environments with youth and adults. In addition to teaching emergency medicine and the EMT program at the Waldo County Tech Center she is the founder of North Star Adventures where she guides private and public expeditions, day trips, and offers SOLO certification in wilderness medicine.

There is space for camping on Friday and Saturday nights for those traveling from a distance.

I had so much fun and learned a lot. The environment was easy going and friendly. I felt comfortable making mistakes and trying again until I felt more confident!
