Course Update - May 18th

After walking through base yesterday and seeing a simulated accident (complete with blood, screaming, and running), I knew the Leadership course was almost finished with their WFR certification classes. They all passed their written tests this morning, and they have the final test this afternoon: the practical. They are in teams of two, and they are given 3 different crisis scenarios to handle. But once this is all over, they can leave the "classroom" and head to the waterfall tomorrow for some rappelling!

Canyon School arrived back in the States today, and they had a fun and memorable time. To quote one student: "We (Americans) have so much stuff that we take for granted. But I realized, when I got to the homestays, that life can even be better with less technology and living life to the fullest. Pura vida!"
