Virtual Wilderness First Responder Requirements

Starting in 2025 we will no longer accept fully virtual Wilderness First Responder, Wilderness First Aid, or CPR certifications or re-certifications, such as those offered through Survival Med Online. We will continue to accept hybrid certifications and re-certifications such as those offered through NOLS and WMA. We recognize that coordinating travel to receive certification training can be difficult in the midst of other obligations, but we strongly believe in the importance of in-person wilderness medical instruction to ensure that our trip leaders are fully prepared to respond to emergencies in the remote settings where we send our trips. If you are still pursuing your certification for Camp this summer we strongly encourage an in-person training and we still have space in our Outdoor Leadership Course offerings at Camp this summer. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns!
