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 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.

Survival Store:

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, Checks or Credit Cards will be accepted.


Wild Med Store:

We will have a large number of Logo related items.  Several different T-Shirt options include different materials, several colors and long/short sleeve options.  We also have coffee mugs, pint glasses, patches, stickers, canvas bags and several other items.  Our most recent additions include "Hoodies," Hats and Nalgene Water Bottles.  Cash, Checks or Credit Cards will be accepted.

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).
