Learn technical rock climbing, archaeological excavation techniques, and black-smithing. Relive the by-gone days of the Old West as you ride a Western saddle horse, learn the ways of the mountain man, pack burros and pan for gold in a clear mountain stream. Discover the wonder of Scouting’s paradise as over 650,000 Scouts and leaders have since 1939.
