The Catskill 3500 Club will be running its annual Wilderness First Aid Course (SOLO Certified) this spring on Saturday and Sunday, April 7th and 8th, at the Catskill Center in Arkville. This is a valuable course for both hike leaders and regular hikers and we are lucky that John Kascenska can instruct again. You can see his considerable experience at kamountainguides.com
More information on what the class involves is at soloschools.com.
The cost for the WFA class is $175. CPR will be offered as well for $25, but will be arranged directly with the instructor that day dependent on interest.
For those considering leading for the club, we are offering an incentive: 75% of the class costs will be refundable after you have been approved for leading and have led 4 hikes in 2 years. Please contact Erica Gelb at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to register.
