Boy Scout High Adventure:
Wilderness First Aid
Philmont Scout Ranch
Philmont requires that each crew have two participants who have completed Wilderness First Aid and two participants with CPR training. Current certification cards must be presented upon check-in to verify this requirement. With two Wilderness First Aiders and two CPR trained members on the trek, the crew will be better able to handle emergencies. This requirement can be met by youth and/or adult participants.
Florida Sea Base
At least one adult leader in each crew must complete Wilderness First Aid Training (WFA) and Basic CPR/AED from an agency approved by the American Camping Association or hold a higher professional license such as MD, DO, EMT, RN, LPN or WFR. Multiple crews require multiple trained leaders. Sea Base highly recommends that every adult leader completes WFA and CPR/AED.
Northern Tier requires that at least one adult must present proof of current training in the following: CPR, Wilderness First Aid, Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat and Weather Hazards.
The Bechtel Summit
The Summit requires that at least one participant (an adult or a youth) in each crew be currently certified in Wilderness First Aid or the equivalent* and CPR from the American Heart Association, the American Red Cross or equivalent.* It is recommended that each crew have at least two participants certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR.
Maine High Adventure
While Maine High Adventure does not actually have any formal Wilderness First Aid or CPR requirements for its participants, we spoke with the director, Art Morgan, who stated that "it is STRONGLY recommended that each and every participant attending Maine High Adventure have both Wilderness First Aid and CPR training." That said, it is only a recommendation, and not a requirement.
Lenhok'Sin (NCAC Boy Scouts)
One or more crew members (either adult or scout) must have Wilderness First Aid.
