Overlander Wilderness and Remote First-Aid Workshop (Dec. 20-22)

Overlander Wilderness and Remote First Aid workshop - Dec. 20-22, 2019

We collaborate every year with our good friend John Fury to bring you the Roof Top Tent Rally at the James River State Park. John is back with a standalone workshop that is critical to anyone who enjoys remote adventure travel.

This Wilderness and Remote First Aid class will be geared around the overlander lifestyle and will focus on the situations that one could be faced with while traveling. Bring your overland rig and all the gear you travel with as we adapt the commonly found gear into life saving supplies.

Students who complete this class will receive a certification through the American Red Cross for Wilderness and Remote First Aid and Adult CPR/AED.

This class is limited to only 10 students. 

Before arriving you will need to complete a 1 to 2 hour online training course for CPR/AED. Primitive camping will be available near by.
