Training Description

This 9-day standard course is taught at the Outward Bound basecamp in Midpines, which is nestled in the woodland foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The amenities of the basecamp combined with the remote feel and wild terrain make for an ideal site for taking a Wilderness Medicine course.

Public Lodging: For an additional fee ($150) quonset-style tent housing is available on site. Additional lodging can be found in Mariposa, 9 mi. from the basecamp, or at the Yosemite Bug Hostel, within a 10 min. drive.
