Two day and two night high adventure that develops confidence and skills in camping and living in the outdoors during extreme weather conditions. Scouts received training in physical preparation, cold weather dress, first aid and emergency procedures, food and water, equipment use while experiencing cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter shelter building. This experience is the embodiment of the Boy Scout’s motto to “Be Prepared” .

2 DAYS LEFT in Spirit Gear Drive

Troop 278 Spirit Gear

Troop 278 Spirit Gear

Go to the website and order now!

This is the link for Boy Scout gear! Ordering online is available through January 31. The feedback I’ve received is that the performance t-shirts and the hoodie run small. The performance t-shirts would be great for camping.

For those signed up for Okpik…

Who’s ready for a fun winter camping experience? Okpik 2018 is this weekend, and I wanted to make sure everyone had the required items from the Okpik flyer — the biggest thing is no cotton, with 2-3 changes of socks and mittens.

We will plan to meet Friday, February 2nd, at the Safeway parking lot NLT 4:45. Please bring a sack lunch for the drive to Tahosa. Mr. Estes and I will be driving.

NLT tonight, January 29, we need the registration form filled out and returned to me at the Monday scout meeting. If you can’t make it, please scan your signed form and email it to me.

Thanks and I will follow up tomorrow!

c. Bring sunglasses and sunscreen
e. WEAR BOOTS – It is much more rugged than you think out there. Tennis shoes get wrecked.
f. Bring a sleeping bag and tent. We will have spares in the trailer.

This event requires maturity and safety. The event leadership team expects no horseplay/goofing around and absolute focus on the instruction given. This is a skills based course to help boys have a rewarding experience with firearms in a controlled environment.
