  • The message should include the names of all those you are paying for, and the name of the program.
  • Your security question should be able to be answered by one of the four H’s in the pledge.

General information:


Members will be split into jr/int (2) and senior (1) groups, and will rotate between ID stations, arena workshops, and the slide show quiz.

  • There will be 4 arena workshops for members to rotate through – vital signs, working bandages, feed quality, and medical bandaging.  Each of the three main groups will be split into 4 small hands-on groups.

Adult Volunteers:

As always, to run the best program possible we need your members to attend, but we also need your help. For every set of 5 members you send, we require a minimum of 1 volunteer.  (ie 4 members = min 1 volunteer, 9 members = min 2 volunteers, etc). If you have additional volunteers, we would be happy to have them. We’ll never refuse more help!

Group leaders will be assigned a group of 6-10 members to ensure they make it to the appropriate session or ID station on time.  As much as possible, ID stations will be supervised by volunteers without participating youth. We also need some help with cleanup so hope you can help before leaving.


Lunch will be provided to all those who are registered and receive a ticket.

Additional information:

  • We are trying to ensure that all members learn. If a scribe is needed, we will provide one.  No parent will be matched with their own child.
  • If you have questions about our ID stations or the slide show quiz, please talk to a committee member, not the people supervising the table.
  • Evaluations are critical for continuing to improve the program. Please take the time to fill one in before leaving.
