READY TO CREATE YOUR ADVENTURE?
Our team has carefully curated a weekend full of activities to choose from. This is a great opportunity to try new activities, enjoy ones you already love, and create a weekend you will remember forever.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR SCHEDULE
  1. Please choose only one 4-hour class per day (rock climbing, mountain biking, paddling, long hike) and fill the rest of your schedule with the shorter 2-hour classes / workshops.
  2. Please do not sign up for the same class/workshop more than once to ensure all participants have the chance to try different activities. Yoga is an exception to this rule - you can sign up for this more than once.. 
  3. If you are interested in a class that is full please sign up for the waitlist. We do have the ability to increase capacity in some classes if there is enough interest.
  4. Please note: You cannot double book time slots. If you select a community event like a meal or happy hour that overlaps with a class you will not be able to sign up for the class. You DO NOT need to add the community events to your schedule as everyone is welcome. so prioritize adding the classes / workshops to your schedule first.
Following these guidelines will help ensure that you don’t overdo it and that everyone will get to have a weekend full of different experiences.

Limited Capacity seats available

Soft tissue injuries including cuts, scrapes, burns, and blisters, are some of the most common injuries experienced in the outdoors. NOLS Wilderness Medicine Instructors will introduce participants to controlling bleeding, preventing infection, and promoting healing. Participants in this clinic will gain hands-on practice cleaning, dressing, and bandaging wounds using first kit supplies and other resources that might be available in remote outdoor settings. The workshop will include new strategies for addressing blisters based on lessons from the endurance athlete community. Attendees will also gain awareness for recognizing and treating infections as well as evacuation decision-making tools. Knowing how to manage wounds will help you step forward with confidence during a medical emergency in the outdoors.
