Snow Camping Outing in Bear Valley

Posted on Jan 6 2019 - 9:44pm

Scouts! Are you up for a winter adventure? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep in a tent in January in the snow-covered Sierras, cook outdoors, enjoy a campfire on the snow with your fellow Scouts, learn about and build a demo snow cave as a team (not to sleep in), engage in a snow ball target competition with your fellow scouts, use your sleds (or snow shovels) for some sliding fun, and enjoy the winter wonderland meandering through the alpine forest on snow shoes? Well, wait no longer and sign-up for our very own 4T2 Snow Camping Outing the end of January. This troop outing replaces the council Klondike Derby which was canceled this year.
