The Wilderness First Responder program is the ideal medical training for leaders in remote areas including outdoor educators, guides, military, professional search and rescue teams, researchers, and those involved in disaster relief. The curriculum is comprehensive and practical. It includes the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments for days and weeks if necessary.

Room and Board:


Lodging

Manidokan is located on 300 acres in rural Maryland, boardered by the Potomac river and the C & O canal, just minutes from Harper's Ferry. Lodging is in primitive, dormitory style cabins - think bunk-beds and summer camp. Each cabin is heated and has two rooms, a larger room with six bunk-beds and a smaller room with two beds. There is a bathhouse located nearby with showers, sinks and toilets. Guests who choose the lodging option will have access to a common area that includes a refrigerator, counters for food prep and plenty of room for studying. Hot meals must be cooked just outside of the common area on your own camp stove and cooking utensils.
