Give Blood, Hike Alpine Adventure

Participants will hike thirty to fifty miles over the course of a week in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Each trek will be accompanied by a trained guide, who will educate Scouts about mountaineering skills and practices. Throughout the week, Scouts will learn how to work as a team, develop leadership skills, increase their self-confidence, and advance their outdoor skills, all while hiking through the unspoiled scenery of the Rocky Mountains.

No Roads Here

Traverse steep and rocky trails as your trek weaves along Continental Divide, bagging a few 13,000 feet peaks in the process. Learn teamwork and group problem solving skills as Scouts fill the major day-to-day leadership positions; making decisions from which route to take, where to pitch camp for the evening, and diving out campsite chores like cooking and cleaning. There is no better program out there to reinforce and strength patrol unity!
