• Wilderness Chaplains

    Supporting wilderness first responders and educating the outdoor community in compassionate crisis response.

Who We Are:

Chaplaincy skills and critical incident response are desperately needed in remote environments. Unfortunately, these services are rare and long, intensive days may elapse before wilderness first responders can access resources for themselves, their teams, and the people they respond to.

As outdoor recreation usage grows, greater demands are being placed on rescue organizations, and their largely non-profit and volunteer-based members are being exposed to more stress and trauma than ever before.                                

Wilderness Chaplains was established to meet the needs of these organizations by providing critical incident stress training, crisis support, and wilderness-ready chaplains.

Our team is working hard to bring free or very low-cost training to all wilderness first responders and to raise awareness with ongoing presentations and workshops.
