Backpacking Checkout Parent Info
Parents: Please note the need for an adult to assist with the paperwork (permission forms, collecting money, etc.) We have adult leaders committed to spending their weekend in the backcountry with the boys. Being adult in charge doesn’t require carrying a pack or hanging a bear bag – just helping the adults going on the trip by having the mundane pre-trip work completed. Thank you for your support – many hands make light work, to quote long time T-1776 SM Mr. Tom Morin. We can’t do this without your help.
