Wilderness Water Safety

David Holden


We have been providing lifeguard training designed for wilderness trip leaders since 1989. We believe backcountry aquatic activities are vital experiences and can managed safely but specialized training is essential. Traditional lifeguard training is not adequate for wilderness trip leaders because the backcountry environment presents so many unique challenges not addressed in traditional lifeguarding. Wilderness Water Safety- because you can't breathe underwater.
