Wind River Hiking and Wilderness First Aid - Alumni

The trip begins in Lander, WY with 8 hours of classroom and scenario-based Wilderness First Aid instruction at the beautiful Wyss Wilderness Medicine Campus. The trip then travels into the Wind River backcountry for a 5-night backpacking expedition where the remaining 8 hours of first aid curriculum is interspersed with classic wilderness and travel topics like camping, cooking, map reading, navigation, non-technical peaks and fly fishing.

It's like two trips in one: explore Wyoming's wilderness and up your first aid game!

Activity Rating*:

*The mileage is lower to accommodate medical curriculum, but backpacking is challenging.
