Wilderness First Aid Weekend

April 23, 2013

One of our most attended events each season is our Wilderness First Aid weekend.

Each year we’ve offered this 2-day class we have been full to capacity. Some of the participants are Knubble Bay committee members. but this year, as in past years the lions share of the participants were folks working in the outdoor industry or avid hikers and paddlers looking to improve their skills. Aaron Gorban who works with AMC and is an instructor for SOLO led the 16-hour course.  The days were intense but well balanced with a mix of classroom lectures and outdoor training. We scored with the weather, cool nights, great for sleeping in the cabin or tenting out and warmish sunny days. Knubble Bay committee members did the cooking. A few folks from our group also took advantage of the weather (and food) and built a new woodshed. We’ll do it again next year. Well, not the woodshed part.
