March Trip - Winter Survival/Pioneering at Camp Resolute - Signups due February 26th

Posted on Feb 25 2015 - 9:27pm

This is an outdoor camping trip - participants should be prepared to sleep in tents or shelters of their own construction.  No cabin will be available.  Due to the amunt of snow on the ground it is likely that scouts will have to clear areas for their tents and cooking.  Scouts need to come prepared with approiate clothing and equipment.  

See our Cold Weather Camping page for more information.

The March trip for Troop 437 is a Pioneering and Survival weekend at Camp Resolute Scout Reservation.  On Saturday the boys will put to test as well as improve upon their pioneering and survival skills. All boys will have the opportunity to plan and assemble their own survival shelters of items found throughout camp! Those boys with a desire for adventure will be able to sleep in the survival shelters that they construct. We will follow  “leave no trace” principals and disassemble all shelters prior to leaving.
