Good morning Unit Leaders and Parents,

Here is an update on the adult training opportunities at Goshen. We are excited to be able to offer both Wilderness First Aid and CPR/AED certifications. We need to have at least 8 people for the course to run, so please show us you are interested by signing-up and making a payment as soon as possible. Thank you for wanting to get trained and certified!


Wilderness First Aid Training (for adults) – Taught by the Center For Wilderness Safety

If you are interested, have your Goshen coordinator register you for this course through the Goshen online system. Participants will be in classWednesday, Thursday, and Friday during all three program times each day (9-noon, 1-5, 7-9pm), and however will be free during meals and siesta times. There course tuition is $70 per person and results in a two year Wilderness First Aid certification through the American Red Cross. Those planning to take this must have a current CPR certification as a prerequisite (a CPR/AED course is available each week prior to the Wilderness First Aid course; however separate enrollment is required). The certification must be from one of the following ECC recognized organizations: American Red Cross, American Heart Assn., ASHI, ECSI.

New CPR Training, Opportunity at Goshen

Due to an overwhelming amount of expressed interest, we have added a Red Cross Adult CPR/AED course for adult leaders; also taught by the Center for Wilderness Safety. There will be one class held each week of camp. The exact day and time of the class is yet to be determined. The cost is $75 per person and results in a two year Red Cross certification. As far as registration goes, the CPR/AED courses will be first come – first served. Please note that unfortunately registration and payment for this course is NOT available through the Goshen website.

To register for this class, please call the Center for Wilderness Safety directly by calling (888) 945-3402 or visit
