Health, First Aid and Medication

Our campus is managed by a skilled and knowledgeable staff with years of experience, degrees in higher education and a passion for the outdoors. All staff are trained to help maintain established health and safety standards. Individuals hold certificates in First Aid (many also have Wilderness First Aid training) and Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Appropriate Challenge Course Safety and Lifeguarding training certificates are held as activities require. All staff carry two-way radios so they can be in constant contact when on trail. Emergency response is a radio call and a fifteen minute paramedic drive away. An AED and an emergency epi-pen are located on each campus.

Our campus has a Health Technician and designated, trained, staff available to dispense medication. For more information, questions or concerns about health or medication while at Walden West, contact our Health Technicians email or call (408) 573-3063. Our fax number is (408) 573-3066.
