Certified Wilderness and Medical Instructors
that offer Private and Public Classes

We teach the skills for critical readiness in the outdoors and life-sustaining lessons. No matter what type of outdoor recreational activities you may partake in, we all have the same basic survival needs which are our biological requirements to maintain life…Air, Shelter, Water and Food. These are the critical skills that we focus on while in a wilderness or remote environment. We also provide life-sustaining lessons by teaching wilderness medicine classes.

 

Our wilderness medicine classes are SOLO certified. SOLO is the oldest, most innovative, and one of the most respected wilderness medical schools in the United States. Learn how to manage an emergency in the backcountry from a SOLO certified instructor. These classes are designed to meet the needs of hikers, skiers, hunters, fisherman, trip leaders, camp staff, and other outdoor enthusiasts who recreate in remote locations. You will learn the skills to treat people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. Lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning. At the end of these classes, you’ll have the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations and also receive a two-year SOLO certification.

 

The main training area is located in Campton, New Hampshire on 40 acres of land owned by Adam Lougee of First Magnitude Wilderness Programs in the beautiful foothills of the White Mountains. If you can’t make it to one of our courses, we have the ability to take the course to your location. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. So, if you are new to outdoor activities or an experienced outdoor enthusiast, then The SCROLL has something to offer you. All of our classes will be conducted in a controlled field setting with certified instructors to ensure student safety and to provide the best opportunity for learning. This is the place and time to make mistakes and learn. You will leave with the confidence and skills necessary to meet your basic survival needs when it really counts.

What is a wilderness or remote environment?

It can be defined as any time you are more than an hour from definitive medical care (hospital emergency room). It typically takes an hour of rescue time for every quarter mile from a drivable road. So, you can see that one doesn’t need to be very far from an urban environment to be in a remote or wilderness setting. If you become lost or injured, do you have the skills and knowledge to make it out or stay for an extended amount of time? After our training, you will possess the critical readiness to safely enjoy the outdoors and have the hands-on training to implement life-sustaining lessons.
