Backpacking 2023

This year a group of boys are going to attend the high adventure camp at Philmont. This is an intense program for boys over the age of 14. They learn to backpack and hike and exist in the wild. Philmont requires scouts to pack and carry their gear instilling principles of leave no trace and the outdoor code and of course the scout oath and law. Our boys have been training and this year have completed a couple of backpacking trips. They will do another in April 2023 so they can pack their gear and get a feel for what the adventure will be like. As a bonus the younger scouts will also be able to train with them and learn what it is like for when they come of age.
