IF YOU DON'T PRACTICE ACTUAL EVACUATION PROCEDURES, YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY
Unlike other wildness first aid classes, this class provides you with practice exercises to mimic real world emergencies to test your skills including evaluation and extraction protocols (which too many courses conveniently exclude).
That means if and when the time comes that you or someone you love is in an emergency … you’ll actually be ready to execute your skills.

FULL DAY EXPERIENCE
The first half day is lecture instruction with lots of time for interaction and questions.
After a lunch break, the afternoon session will have you put your new skills to practical use in a variety of mock emergency scenarios.
ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. DOOR REGISTRATION IS NOT AVAILABLE. 2020 ALL ACCESS PASS HOLDERS ARE GUARANTEED ADMISSION (please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you plan to attend so we can keep track of numbers).
This is a one of a kind class by one of the best outdoorsmen and instructors in the Midwest.
No. The value of these potentially life-saving skills delivered in this all-day class is well worth the relatively low cost. Children of many ages have attended this event and had a great time, although you are the best judge of your child's capacity for this material. The afternoon session with practical exercises especially will be fun for kids to work through.
The class will be held in Chadwick, Missouri on private land. After you register, you will receive an email with the exact address. Following the lunch break which you can enjoy outdoors (weather permitting), Dan will guide you through a variety of mock emergency scenarios to implement the expertise you developed during the morning session.
IS THERE A DISCOUNT FOR FAMILIES OR CHILDREN?
There are no refunds and, while you can choose to attend all or a portion of the class, the fee is a one-time flat fee.
ARE THERE ANY REFUNDS, OR CAN I PAY FOR A PORTION OF THE CLASS?
ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 17 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN FOR THE FULL DURATION OF THE CLASS. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS. But otherwise children are most welcome assuming you judge the experience suitable to them.
CAN I SEND MY CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 17?
We do not cancel the event for weather conditions, OTHER THAN if we, in our sole discretion, deem it unsafe for people to attend the class in extreme weather. In that event, all registered students will receive a full and prompt refund. Cold or rainy weather is in fact an excellent circumstance in which to practice the skills you will be learning.
WILL THE CLASS BE HELD IF THE WEATHER IS COLD OR RAINY?
Please bring (1) a fold up chair if you have one (2) items you would normally bring on a day hike including rain gear, trekking poles if you have them, your personal first aid and survival kit, your pack, etc. (3) water and food for lunch / snacks and (4) materials for taking notes, and (5) appropriate clothing for the afternoon session which will be outdoors, rain or shine.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
No refunds or exchanges other than as specified. Registration is for serious participants only.

ATTENTION Hikers, Backpackers and Outdoor Enthusiasts Who Don't Want To Become A Statistic

would you know how to get him out?
Join Hiking the Ozarks Founder, Dan Nash, to learn essential wilderness first aid skills, suitable for day hikers, backpackers, climbers, kayakers, canoers, fishers, hunters and everyone else who spends time in the outdoors.
No outdoor lover is immune.
This is an intensive full day wilderness first aid class so you learn how to deal with the most common injuries and medical issues that may arise in the wilderness.
Unlike most other wilderness first aid classes, we will lead you through real life emergency scenarios so you learn how to recognize symptoms and diagnose and treat illness or injury, as well as evacuation protocols - what other wilderness first aid classes conveniently omit!
It's so easy to think, it's not going to happen to me!
Until it does.
Would you really know what to do if you or someone you’re hiking with ...
... breaks a bone?
... suffers an allergic reaction?
... shows signs of hypothermia?
Do you know the signs of heat exhaustion or hypothermia?
When seconds count, it’s critically important that you know EXACTLY how to proceed in an emergency.
