This year’s theme: Winter & Cold and Winter Survival

We believe we are the longest-running Wild Med course in the Mid-Atlantic Region and this year is our 11th year. We are one of the most unique Wilderness Medicine Conferences on the planet. The vision for this course is to be held entirely outdoors. All of the lectures, workshops and meals are held in the Woods of Hanover, Pennsylvania. All of our faculty have personal, real-world experience with the topics that they are teaching. We include a small parallel kids course, because one of our missions is not only to inspire the adult registrants to "Find Adventure," but also to inspire the next generation. We encourage our faculty to share personal stories of their adventures related to their topic. Another mission is to support the Wilderness Medical Society's (WMS) Fellowship of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM). Many of our Faculty are graduates of the FAWM while a number of them are FAWM Candidates. Each year at our Conference, we inspire a number of registrants to enroll in this program and our topics are chosen specifically to assist candidates in obtaining as many FAWM credits as possible.
