It's time for our annual Highly Anticipated Backpack Bootcamp!
Scouts, if you are interested in trying your hand at backpacking, or want to qualify for the 2019 Skunk Ape Patrol excursion(Best Time EVER!), make plans to join our experienced crew as we head to Tanah Keeta to tackle the Mike Machek Trail.
On Saturday December 14th, we will backpack 8+ miles, setup camp at the Outpost Campsite in a part of TK you've never seen and enjoy dinner (Freezdried Cuisine of your choice) and a night under the stars around a campfire. On Sunday morning, we'll eat breakfast, pack up our gear and finish the last 3 miles then head to KFC for lunch on the way home. It's a fun weekend and a great overnight backpacking experience.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST BACKPACKING OVERNIGHT TRIP JUST ASK A LEADER FOR SOME PACKING TIPS , AND YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT UNDER A STARRY SKY NIGHT!
**If you are in need of overnight gear many leaders have extra you can barrow for this trip**
ON the test hike during SAW there was no standing water on the trail this year.. There might however be some mud.
We'll cover what you need to bring before heading out. Sign up now! SPACE IS LIMITED
