July 10-19, 2018 Northern Tier High Adventure - Registration/Payment Update

Posted by tking on Sep 11 2017 - 1:28pm

Scouts and parents – it’s time to decide whether you are going to participate in Troop 365’s summer 2018 high adventure expedition to Northern Tier “NT” wilderness canoeing and camping .

For those of you who have already committed with initial deposits, thank you, we’ll be able to move onto the next stages of travel planning and budget information near term as we get greater clarity of the number of participants.

To those who are still thinking about participation, please discuss between scout and parents asap, look again at the materials attached as we passed out earlier in the year, come to the Troop meeting with any questions, and let us know as soon as possible if you will participate, committing to your spot with that initial deposit.

All, our next incremental payment will be due by the end of this month.

At this time with two crews reserved, we have several open spots for scouts. With BSA’s NT strict guidelines on scouts to adults ratio then if more adults want to go we’ll have try to add a third crew, then there will be many more open spots for scouts.

More information can be found here.

Thank you, Mr. Stephens.

Sep. 15-17: West Clear Creek/Hanging Gardens Backpack

Posted by tking on Sep 10 2017 - 10:56am

Important reminders about the Hanging Gardens outing next weekend:

1. We need everyone to decide if they are going on the long hike and staying at the hanging gardens or the short and staying up on the rim. Please indicate if your are doing the LONG or SHORT hike in the notes/comments area of your online registration on the web site if you have not done so. Adults should also be indicating if they can drive and number of seatbelts (including your own).
2. Everyone will need a PFD. The troop has some.. Please email Mr. Rideout if you need one.
3. When you pack, anything you take down to hanging gardens will get wet so please double bag and bring in dry bags.

This will be a dual route backpack with the high adventure crew camping at the Hanging Gardens in the West Clear Creek Wilderness area.  We will drive up to the trail head off the General Crook Highway on Friday night. On Saturday morning we will hike approximately five miles along level terrain on a forest road to our scenic campsite overlooking the West Clear Creek Gorge. After setting up camp we will descend into West Clear Creek and begin the journey to the Hanging Gardens. Scouts will need to bring life jackets, water shoes and a dry bag as the canyon becomes very narrow and there will be almost a quarter mile of swimming required to reach the Hanging Gardens. Those on the high adventure crew will need to bring dry bags large enough to fit their backpacks.  The scouts camping on the rim will only need dry bags large enough to fit their daypacks. This is a very beautiful and remote area that we have visited several times in the past. Scouts must wear a life jacket in Clear Creek and have passed the BSA swimmers test. We will review safety and equipment needed for this adventure at the meeting preceding this trip.

The troop will be hiking the Grand Canyon from north to south rim. Scouts ages 14 or older or with scoutmaster permission may sign up for this trip. We also need adult volunteers to be "drivers" - camping with us at the North Rim the first evening and then packing up camp and driving to the south rim to meet the hikers the next day.

We have the campground reserved on the North Rim fro Saturday night and then on Sunday night we have 5 rooms at the Yavapai Lodge as well as campsites at the South Rim reserved.
