Your ability to provide immediate and prolonged care in a wilderness environment with limited resources may make the difference between a fast recovery or a permanent disability or worse. Developed by the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) in association with the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American College of Emergency Physicians, ECSI has developed one of the leading Wilderness First Aid courses available. Our instructors are trained by Philmont’s own physician’s and staff, at Philmont Training Center. Emphasis is on situations most often encountered during High Adventure outings.

This class will include numerous hands-on scenarios. There is a strict limit of 12 students. A light breakfast will be provided each day along with coffee and water. Due to the wide range of dietary preferences, please bring your own sack lunch, water will be provided. You MUST be present for both sessions. Please note: In order to use this class to fulfill the Boy Scouts of America Wilderness First Aid requirement, you must be at least 14 years of age and have a current adult CPR certification, or sign up for the Sunday session. Those successfully completing this class will earn a 2-year certification.
