Wilderness First Aid certification through SOLO
Accidents happen. People get hurt, sick, or lost. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and it starts to rain. Would you know what to do? Many backcountry emergencies are preventable, and even when bad things happen, sometimes the wrong care can make things worse. By learning a few basic skills, you can make the difference between a good outcome and a bad one-and maybe even save a life.
The WFA is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.

Summer Camp Open House
Join us for a FREE open house event on March 28th in Newtown or March 29th in Granby! The whole family can get a taste of our awesome summer camp experiences for kids 0-15. You’ll tour the campground, meet staff and alumni, participate in hands-on games & activities, and have the chance to ask any questions. This event is rain or shine (just like our camp!) so please dress appropriately for the weather.
You can also learn more about programs that we offer throughout the year, including the Forest Learning Program and Homeschool sessions that offer a full day of school in the woods, monthly Wildwood weekend programs, or Coyote Pups caregiver & child programs.

Two fall 2019 community events brought people together and donations in for the School with a Flatbread Pizza fundraiser in Canton and the sold out Rushad Eggleston cello and comedy concert at Sticks & Stones in Newtown. Keep an eye out for future family-friendly events!
At our 2019 Fall Contra Dance Dinner & Auction, we gathered with over 130 of our family, friends, and supporters to celebrate, play, dance, eat, and talk by the fire on a beautiful clear evening. You helped us raise close to $8000 to support our scholarship fund and further our mission of connecting people with nature, community, and self. Thank you to all the individuals and businesses who contributed to the auction to help make it a success.
If you missed the event, there is still time to contribute! Please make a donation today to help us grow and deepen the impact of Two Coyotes in Connecticut.
