Details

Join us for camping and hiking in scenic Yosemite!
  • We're going Labor Day weekend (September 1-3) and anticipate strong interest.
  • We're *not* leaving on Friday night with everyone else in the Bay Area.  Instead, we're leaving early on Saturday morning, Sept 1, and returning Monday Sept 3.
  • There will be time for everyone to do two day-hikes before coming back on Monday
  • There are lots of easy and more strenuous potential hikes including Mirror Lake, the Mist Trail, Bridalveil Falls, Vernal Falls, and Yosemite Falls. We may also be able to hike Cloud's Rest, an epic ridge that looks down on Half Dome. Due to bad luck in the Yosemite lottery this year, we only have Half Dome hiking permits for 4 scouts and 2 adults. Scouts wanting to hike Half Dome will be selected by seniority, and hiking experience. Hiking Merit Badge is not required.
  • We have secured campsites for 55 campers, which means 45 Scouts and 10 Adult Leaders (including Scoutmasters).
  • Adult leaders must be able to transport at least 7 people - unless they're carrying troop gear - and help the Scoutmasters with meals, hikes and activities. 
Campground
  • Upper Pines Campground is in the heart of Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park
  • Info: https://www.recreation.gov/camping/upper-pines
  • Yosemite Valley provides awe-inspiring views of many of Yosemite's most famous natural features. If you have not been before it is worth coming up to see why we visit the park each fall.
Possible Hikes
  • Mr. Braun will lead the First Year Scouts and Troop Guides who will do a 5ish mile hike that will gain 1000' of elevation.
    • Vernal Falls via the Mist Trail
    • Clark Point just above Vernal Falls
    • Return via John Muir Trail
    • Other adults are welcome to join this hike
  • Mr. Stanley will be leading a hike of the Panorama Trail  - $$$$
    • Panorama Trail is a nearly 10-mile long point-to-point hike from the top to the bottom of Yosemite Valley. Starting at Glacier Point and ending at Happy Isles, the trail descends 3,200 feet and is filled with sensational views.
    • 8:30 am Take Bus from Yosemite Lodge to Glacier Point - Cost $26 for bus ride - need a pre-count of who will attend to per-purchase bus tickets.
