The programs we conduct have been designed to provide a level of mental and physical challenge to participants. With all activities come specific hazards as well as general hazards which need to be noted.
Wilderness Escape programs are held outdoors throughout many different areas of South Australia’s wilderness. While our staff minimise each activities risk there are some variables which are out of our control such as the environment and weather. Participants need to be aware the planned activities will still run during weather which may not be ideal e.g. heat, cold, wind, or rain although activities do have contingencies for extreme weather. While the weather or conditions may not be ideal during the program, this is a part of the overall experience and will help participants build resilience through stretching comfort zones.
More information regarding risk management strategies is available at our website: http://www.wildernessescape.com.au
All Wilderness Escape staff members have a minimum of Senior First Aid training, whilst support staff hold an upgraded skillset which includes Remote Area First Aid. All staff will carry a comprehensive Group First Aid kit during the activities during the program. If you feel that additional information should be supplied regarding your child's medical or psychological history then please upload/return it as a medical action/care plan.
Before the program, ensure your child’s medical information form is completed online so that staff are aware of any medication they may be taking. Please make sure any medication required is noted on the medical form indicating the condition under which it is to be taken, and participants bring it with them. For example, Epipens or Ventolin must accompany them at all times. This includes medication that may be taken infrequently and over the counter medication (such as Panadol for headaches or Nurofen for migraines). WEOA staff are not able to supply medications to a participant unless it is noted on the medical form.
*PLEASE NOTE: In the case of medical conditions, such as asthma, allergies, anaphylaxis, diabetes or epilepsy, any existing management plan and emergency plan signed by a GP or specialist must be attached/uploaded at the time of registration (please make sure it is legible). This also applies to any medication your child may be taking for any or these conditions. If you are unsure about your child’s ability to participate in the activities based on their medical conditions then please consult your family physician.
