Hey folks! It's sad but true, "WFR Camp" has come to and end and all twenty-two of us have scattered, by today, from the East Coast to the West Coast (California) and many places in-between. Jason & I want to thank all the students for coming together and working hard for an intensive 9-day Wilderness First Responder course in Asheville, NC.
Yall were awesome! We had college roommates from UNC-Asheville, two family sets of students (a mother/son team and a father/daughter team), high school seniors, international guides/educators, a nursing student and a very special birthday girl! Several students expressed that this WFR changed their prospective on their potential career path with a couple looking seriously at coming back for Landmark Learning's Semester Program, including the WEMT course.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors! Remember to always crack the Can of Calm, drop the hammer and go big! I want to say a special thanks to this group of students for sending me off to grad school with one final, super fun WFR course! I might sneak back in to the outdoor classroom occasionally during grad school, but I'm pretty sure I won't get to teach another WFR for a few years. It was a blast pulling my last one out right up to the day before grad school started. In fact, several of my co-students, asked how the course finished up and if everyone passed - I was was pleased to say that all of you passed with flying colors!! Keep up the good work and stay in touch!
