Shenandoah Backpacking Outing
August 2 @ 7:00 am - August 5 @ 5:00 pm
We will plan to leave early on Thursday, approx. 7:00 AM, as this is a 7ish hour drive. Scouts will bring a sack lunch to eat on the way to Shenandoah.
Friday and Saturday we will be exploring the National Park via the Appalachian Trail and other side trails to overlook vistas, waterfalls, and possibly Hoover’s Rapidan Camp. We will also work to teach younger scouts the basics of backpacking. For example, how to properly pack your backpack, how to set up & bear proof camp, and cooking on backpacking stoves.
We will drive home on Sunday, arriving late afternoon.
