Hug-a-Tree and Survive

Hug-a-Tree and Survive is an RCMP search and rescue initiative that helps lost children survive in the woods. This proactive, preventative program originated in San Diego, CA, after a nine-year-old boy became lost and tragically died in the wilderness.

A core program under the AdventureSmart banner, Hug-a-Tree and Survive teaches children invaluable outdoor survival lessons, including:

  • Always tell an adult where you are going.
  • If you are lost, stay put and “Hug a Tree.”
  • Keep warm and dry.
  • Help searchers find you by answering their calls.
