9:00 am to Noon

 The Westmoreland Fayette Council High Adventure Committee would like to invite all Scouts and Scouters to attend a first time event entitled Backpacking 101. 

The purpose of this training will be to introduce you to backpacking and cover topics that include:  Types of packs, stoves, sleeping bags, what items are a 'must have' to backpacking and what items would be 'nice to have'. 

All participants are encouraged to bring their backpack packed with the items they think they would need to go on a backpacking trip because there will be time to discuss and review as well as go on a mini hike.

There will also be a short presentation on the Laurel Hiking Trail as well as BSA’s Philmont High Adventure Base.

Although there is no cost for this course we need everyone to register by Wednesday, April 12, 2017 so we can be prepared.  Please fill out the reservation form HERE and submit to the Westmoreland Fayette Council Office.
