C. Expedition 2019

Learn how to survive outside in the winter for two nights

Registration Opens 10/1/2018

Program Highlights

This weekend program provides an Advanced Winter Skills Expedition providing Scouts a new challenge of planning and having roles that support a team as they would in a real expedition. Scouts will have a North Wind Guide and North Wind gear, but will be mostly independent throughout the expedition – preparing them for future self-sufficient outings in the cold climate. Scouts will achieve a new level of understanding to manage their situation while managing their core needs with limited resources.

Possible activities: Winter shelter building, ice climbing, shooting sports, gaga ball, human foosball, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, team building games, orienteering, winter cooking , ice safety, night hike, plus advanced navigational, first aid, and problem-solving challenges.
