If you're interested to the Canyon Country of Utah and Arizona spring break trip please add your name to the list by this week.


We have enough interest to run the trip. Next we need to determine the permit size for the group. This week is the deadline.

We're judging whether there is enough interest to have a spring break trip (April 2-8, 2017) to the Canyon Country of Utah and Arizona.  We're considering two prospective trips, one to the Grand Canyon and one to Escalante National Monument. More details here.


      Either trip is long enough to count as one of the four required for the Backpacking Merit Badge.   


     We  need to apply for a permit by the end of this month for an April trip. Minimum trip size is two ASMs and two scouts; maximum is 11 people in the Grand Canyon and 12 in Escalante.  


       The trip difficulty levels are:

·   Grand Canyon:   Moderately Strenuous 

·   Escalante :          Moderate


If you're interested you can add your name here.
