How: This event is not open for new sign-ups. You will be notified if there is a spot for you.


The number of scouts attending is dependent on the number of drivers/car spots. First spots will go to the scouts who signed up for the original weekend. We hope everyone who wants to join, gets to go. If numbers are too big, we will use the timestamp from the original weekend.  

Plan on attending the mandatory meeting on Tuesday 2/25 to go over safety, equipment, set up carpools, patrols and meals.

NOTE: ALL scouts going on the trip must attend this session! 


Refer to the attached Equipment List in the "Winter and Backpacking Tips" slide show to prepare your clothing and equipment.
