19 Oaks Backpack Overnight (Scholl)

May 4 @ 8:00 am - May 5 @ 4:00 pm PDT

We’ll do a 3 mile hike to our campsite, near Paradise Road over fairly easy terrain. The start will probably involve crossing the shallow Santa Ynez river – START OUT IN WATER SHOES OR OLD SANDALS OR SNEAKERS FOR THIS – then we dry our feet and put on hiking shoes. Bring your own trail lunch (no cooking) to eat while hiking in. We’ll do some exploratory hiking near our beautiful campsite. This is a perfect trip for less experienced backpackers. More experienced scouts will be assigned the task of planning menus, getting the food and showing the less experienced boys how cooking is done by patrols on a backpacking trip for dinner on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Gather at Big 5 parking lot in Five Points shopping center at 8AM on Saturday, May 4. We will return to the back parking lot at the church at 3PM on Sunday. Boys will need to check out gear at the April 30 troop meeting: tents (2 boys per tent, maximum 2 years in age apart), water filters (1 per patrol by patrol leaders), stoves and fuel (1 per patrol by patrol leaders). A personal gear list will be put out soon.
