This is a basic backpack experience to show Unit leadership different places and ways to use QSR as a Unit program.
Black Jack Trail is an experience where the history of Quivira Scout Ranch is delved into and some backpacking is done into the heart of The Ranch leaving all big, fancy equipment behind.  This is as opportunity for your Unit to go out with a minimum of equipment, have maximum fun, and use The Ranch to its fullest. There are endless program opportunities on our own Council Camp, and we urge every Unit to take advantage of them.

Special Needs: BJT is an adventure in back packing which requires hiking. A typical hike may include anything from well-kept paths to re-discovering long lost trails. Meeting specific dietary requirements (food) is the hiker's responsibility. If someone has physical special needs, please contact the course director 60 days IN ADVANCE of BJT week to discuss arrangements. There are limited locations available for physical special needs. Accommodating the physical special needs of hikers will need to be approved IN ADVANCE by the Medic for the weekend. A good-faith effort will be made by Staff to help every person enjoy the BJT experience, but limited resources are available for this type of program.
