Badlands Search & Rescue is proud to announce that we are now certified and able to teach kids, ages 7-11, through the preventative search and rescue program, "Hug-A-Tree."

Inspired for the search for nine-year-old Jimmy Beveridge in 1981 in Southern California the program teaches children how to survive in the backcountry should they become lost.

The program was developed to educate children in a select few of the most basic, but vital survival principles. It was specifically designed for children between the ages of 7-11 but can be effective with both slightly younger and older children. The program consists of a trained presenter following a tightly scripted presentation that has three primary parts: 1) an introduction of the presenter and program, 2) a video presentation, and 3) practical suggestions and demonstrations.

Many children are alive today because of their experience with the Hug-a-Tree and Survive program, which is dedicated in memory of Jimmy Beveridge.

If your daycare, school, or group would like to have this program taught to your children, please contact BSAR to set up a date and time at or [email protected]
