I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect because I have never had CPR or first aid training of any kind. I was so pleasantly surprised by the class. Our instructor, Hewitt, was extremely knowledgable and approachable if we had any questions or needed help. The class was broken up into lecture time and “scenarios,” where we had to put what we had learned into practice and occasionally do a little improvising. We each took turns being the injured or ill victim and the rescuer, having to diagnose and save the victims. While this might seem a little nerve-wracking or high pressure to some, it was actually one of the most fun and helpful parts of the class. It is what helped build my confidence the most- and if anyone was struggling, Hewitt was right there to help us all out. Hewitt lightened the pressure by coming up with ridiculously funny stories to set the scenes for our accidents and let us act it out with fake blood and wounds. Alyx and the Shoestring Adventures team were very hospitable and made it such a great trip, with ample time for socializing, games, and tons of great food and company. I couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable trip, and now I’m proud to say that I’m WFA certified!” – Rachel “The Wilderness First Aid Course was an awesome experience! I’m a nurse, so I deal with medical things often, but even I learned a lot about how to work in the wilderness setting. Huge boost of confidence gained during those 3 days. Plus Alyx takes care of all the logistics, so it’s almost like all the fun of camping served on a platter without you worrying about anything. It’s a great learning environment and the camaraderie is incredible, too.” – Sara
