Join us for camping and hiking in Yosemite!
  • We're going Labor Day weekend (September 2-4)
  • Families and siblings are welcome (although we'll give preference to scouts)
  • We have secured campsites for 90 participants, so we hope to accommodate all that are interested.
  • We're *not* leaving on Friday night with everyone else in the Bay Area.  Instead, we're leaving early on Saturday morning, Sept 2, and returning Monday Sept 4.
  • There will be time for everyone to do two day hikes before coming back on Monday
  • Experienced scouts, instead of hiking Half Dome, will be able to hike Cloud's Rest, an epic ridge that looks down on Half Dome or another hike such at Mt. Dana, yet to be determined.
  • Tuolumne Meadows is in the high country of Yosemite National Park
  • it is much less crowded than the valley and a totally different experience than the valley, if you have not been before it is worth coming up to see why we visit the park each fall.
