Friday Aug 11 2017 / 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

Point Reyes Station


Event Contact: ASM Jay
Event Location: Point Reyes National Seashore 1 Bear Valley Road Point Reyes Station

Geared towards scouts interested in learning more about backpacking (vs car camping).   Scouts will hike about six miles (moderate) into Point Reyes National Park to Wildcat campground, setup camp and spend two nights before heading back on the same route.   Scout will carry all of their personal items, gear, and their own food for this adventure.   On Sat, the plan is to trek out to a waterfall, beach activities, have older scouts/adults share their knowledge of backpacking (e.g. Gear, Leave No Trace, Dining, and Risk/First Aid) and relax and enjoy Point Reyes natural beauty
