What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, camping, kayaking, dirt biking, fitness, etc. All skill levels are welcome. I started this group to meet other outdoor enthusiasts and post events I've had interest in doing. Members will be able to suggest events also. Looking forward to exploring the outdoors with others with similar interests.

Note: RSVP for any event you are interested in attending. Some are easy, some moderate, some difficult and strenuous. Some require specific equipment and skill sets. For these events, do answer the questions when you RSVP. Mostly questions to vet people as to experience, fitness and skill sets. You will first be on the waiting list. After vetting and you have the qualifications, I will move you to the going list.

I do RSVPs this way as to not disappoint someone just jumping them to the going list first and then having to take them off. And for everyone's safety too.

I'm new to running a group and managing it. So have patience. I'm trying to be fair and have safe events.

Camp-Hike-Train: Wilderness First Aid

Needs a location

Details Camp on the prairie at the doorway to the Delta, with wide-open skies overhead and on-site trailheads for hiking opportunities. WILDERNESS FIRST AID Wilderness first aid is the assessment and treatment of injuries and illnesses in remote locations, with limited resources, for an extended period of time (definitive medical care cannot be accessed for an hour or more). The program provides valuable training in an enjoyable, hands-on format. You’ll learn a practical, step-by-step approach to WFA that will help you develop the skills and confidence you’ll need to manage backcountry emergencies. This course is designed for individuals who are not professional responders, but who require or desire wilderness first aid knowledge and skills. Hiking/climbing leaders, camp counselors or administrators, rangers and other occupations that work in wilderness, and all outdoor enthusiasts will benefit from this course. Keep in mind that Peak Skills Wilderness First Aid is not like any other WFA class you've taken! You'll get a broader depth of knowledge through the use of hands-on props and visual aids that boost retention of the material - which translates to being better prepared to respond in an actual outdoor emergency. DETAILS COST: $210 Includes 16 hours of instruction, student WFA handbook, handouts, certificate(must complete all 16 hours)and optional, free on-site camping for Saturday night. Your RSVP does not register you for the class! To register click here.
