Backpacking June 2015

We will traveling to Inyo National Forest, and backpack into Little Lakes Valley above Rock Creek Lake. Hike is about 4 miles one way. Tents, water filters & stoves will be provided by the troop. Scouts will be placed in a “food group” to cover the dinners & breakfasts. Lunches are on your own. Scouts will need the proper equipment, boots, proper sleeping bag, sunscreen, two quarts of water, sunglasses, mosquito repellent, warm clothing for the evening, and additional required backpacking gear. Scouts MUST be in relatively good shape and be able to handle altitudes over 10,000 feet. Those wishing to fish in the lakes, must bring proper gear, and have the proper fishing license if required.

If this is the scout’s first backpack with the troop, pack & equipment will need to be approved prior to departure. Please see or call Mr. Terpening.

Uniform will be class B. Cost: $20.00 per person. Does not include food. Transportation fee maybe an additional amount requested.
