Backpacking Campout - November 7-9, 2014

Posted on Oct 30 2014 - 5:55pm

Signup Closes on Monday night! The November campout will be a backpacking campout and all participants must be able to pack their own gear in a backpack and hike approximately 5 miles per day over hilly terrain wearing a backpack to participate in this campout. 

Each participant will need to have a backpack that can carry their own personal gear including the following: sleeping bag (if they choose to use on), 1/2 of their tent with their tent buddy carrying the second 1/2 of their tent, 3 meals worth of food, personal mess kit, minimum 2 Liters of water, weather appropriate clothing, personal first aid kit, toiletries, etc.   We will be hiking as a group over hilly terrain so it is very important that all participants have the gear and stamina to hike approximately 5-7 miles daily with a backpack. 

The deadline to sign up for the November campout is November 3, 2014 at the troop meeting. We also are requesting that all participants in the November campout bring their backpack on Nov. 3rd  packed with all of their personal gear (except their tent) so that we can conduct a gear shakedown during the troop meeting prior to the campout.

Since we will be camping along the banks of Lake Texoma, any scouts who have a collapsible fishing pole can also bring that if they have adequate space in their backpack. 

If any scouts have a desire to go on the campout but do not own a backpack, we suggest you contact your other friends in scouting and see if you can borrow a backpack from them.  Unfortunately REI in Dallas no longer has rental backpacks.

This campout will be a fun challenge for all those who participate and it will allow the scouts to experience a totally different kind of campout vs. our usual "trailer camping" campout. 

Contact Mr. Jay Halpin, Scoutmaster Troop 841, if you have any questions.
