Hey scouts, learn traditional rock climbing and rappelling on the crags at October County Council’s Lost Valley Scout Reservation. This overnight outing is limited to the first 25 participants so sign up quickly. Last day to reserve your place is October 1st.
In addition to your regular camping gear, scouts will need to bring the following personal equipment. Trail shoes / boots and durable loose fitting pants (denim not recommended) plus a daypack with minimum of two (filled) Nalgene bottles or equivalent hydration pack. We will be hiking from camp to the designated rock climbing area. Pack for possible cool overnight temperatures.
