- Backpacking Sign-Ups Due at March 14 Meeting
The payment and permission slip for the March 25-27 Backpacking Weekend are due at the March 14 Troop meeting. Late sign-ups will not be accepted. The logistics of a backpacking weekend (food, trail shelters, etc.) are more complicated than car camping, so we need a solid count of participants earlier than normal. More information about the weekend can be found below.
- Health Forms Reminder – Forms are Due by June 6
Just a reminder that 2022 health forms are due to the Troop by June 6, 2022. Everything you need to know can be found on the Health Forms page.
- Ice Age Trail Backpacking Weekend – March 25-27 – Kettle Moraine North, Wisconsin
We have a great weekend planned on the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine State Forest. We will hike a total of about 9 miles on the Ice Age Trail over Saturday and Sunday. We will carry all our gear with us – food, cooking equipment, water, sleeping bags, and clothes - and camp in backpacking shelters along the trail on Friday and Saturday nights.
This will be a great opportunity to experience a couple days of backpacking and sleeping out in a trail shelter. The shelters are three-sided wood structures that offer some protection from the wind and precipitation. The trip also offers an opportunity to complete some of the requirements for Camping and Hiking merit badges.
The cost of the trip is $45.00 per person and the permission slip can be found in the Resource Center. Payment and the permission slip are due at the March 14 Troop meeting.
- Summer Camp at Owasippe Dates – July 17-23, 2022
