Introduction to Backpacking Discussion
Troop 355 is going backpacking on October 19th; Buckhorn to Cooper Canyon Trail Camp along the Burkhart and Pacific Crest Trails in the Angeles National Forest. This is a great opportunity for first time backpackers to get some experience because the hike into camp is 2.7 miles and one of the flatest hikes you are ever going to get in the Angeles National Forest (with only a net loss of 250 feet in elevation).
Parents and Scouts who are interested in backpacking are encouraged to attend. The 45 min meeting will cover the unique equipment needs for Scout backpacking. Please wear your uniform since we head right into our Troop Meeting following this session. You DO NOT need to sign up to attend – just show up – WE WILL START ON TIME.
Don’t miss your chance to include backpacking in your Scouting experience!
Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 355
