Winter Skills Adventure Program - February 6, 2021 and February 20-21 , 2021
Winter Skills Adventure Program
Come spend an exciting and memorable weekend in the snow with us! Learn how to build a snow structure & stay warm. Learn to identify dangerous avalanche conditions and how to avoid them. Learn basic winter survival skills and first aid. The seminar addresses all aspects of winter camping and outdoor travel in a condensed classroom session that assumes basic backpacking knowledge and builds on that for a fun and safe experience in the winter.
The Winter Camping Seminar has two parts: a full day classroom zoom session where you'll learn the necessary skills, and then a field trip where you will put those skills to action by building a snow structure & sleeping in it!
To participate, Scouts must be at least 14 years old.
This is a requirement due to the heavy lifting of snow blocks, the challenging work and extreme conditions the Scouts will encounter.
The class welcomes and encourages older Scouts to assist as junior leaders.
Cost: $20 per person.
Note: Registration for the lecture portion includes the field trip.
