The climbing wall

11th Annual Wilderness Medicine & Survival Skills Conference

September 15-17, 2017

Rappelling Platform, Climbing Wall & Ziplining:
Learn how to rappel off of our 30-foot high rappelling platform. Throughout the weekend we will have experienced climbers manning the platform. You can even try it Commando/Aussie style (upside down).

In addition to two lanes of Rappelling, we also have a 30 ft. high/ 16 ft. wide Climbing Wall. The Wall has three lanes of climbing, each with more than one route. Departing the platform is a series of 5 zip lines (canopy tour of over 1,100 feet of cable).

Low Ropes Course / Team Building Course. We have a new 15 station course built to challenge everyone of all ages.

Campfires:
Friday and Saturday evening will feature a bonfire (we like our fires BIG), complete with S’mores and Campfire Peanuts.  Saturday evening will also include an ice cream social.

Outdoor movies for the kids:
Each evening we will have an outdoor kid friendly movie. The movie will be projected onto a screen: better than a Drive-In!

Survival Store: Aug 24 update: We think we will be ready for Credit Cards.  Reminder: summiting a fourteener? No problemo!  Technology? Mmmmm..... If you register for the course, we will send you an update email one week before the course if we are Credit Card ready!!

During the Conference, you will learn how to build survival kits.  You will also learn how to use other survival items.  We will have a small store where you will be able to purchase many of the items that you will learn about.  We will offer survival whistles, fire steels, SAM splints, hanks of para-cord, knives, webbing and many other items.  Cash or Checks will be accepted.  New this year (we hope): Credit Cards to be accepted via "The Square."  For those who register for the course, an email will be sent a week before the event.  We will include updated information regarding payment options.

Meal time entertainment:
During Lunch and Dinner on Saturday and Sunday, we try to provide some form of entertainment. In past years we had demos by our Disaster Response Team, Search & Rescue Dogs, Jugglers, Musicians, Magic Show, etc 

Survival Tricks:
At the beginning of each educational session, a survival “trick” will be demonstrated.

Past tricks included: how to turn your wristwatch into a compass, how to remove a single
strand from a section of para-cord, how to tell time using your fist, how to find the North Star, etc.

Back by popular demand will be a demonstration of Bear Spray (inside joke).
