Tahosa Trek

Tahosa Trek adds a stand alone option separate from EaglePoint Base Camp.

Tahosa Trek was created to provide an introduction to backpacking for those Scouts too young for Alpine Adventure Trek, or who do not yet feel ready for an extended backpacking trip. Tahosa Trek is comprised of classroom time and a three day, two night trip in the Roosevelt National Forest just off the Camp Tahosa property.

Over the three days, Scouts will learn about packing a backpack, clothing and footwear choices, as well as learn about pacing and choosing a campsite. Scouts will also learn about cooking over a backpacking stove and the principles of Leave No Trace. At the end of the program trekkers will have the skills and confidence to tackle larger trips or return to the troop to teach those Tenderfoot and Second Class Scouts. Please use the gear list in the Leader’s Guide.

Treks are limited to 11 participants and must include a minimum of 1 adult. Scouts must be second year campers to participate in this program. 

Tahosa Trek at EaglePoint

Tahosa Trek is an introduction to backpacking for both Scouts and Scouters. You will spend 2 days at camp working on merit badges and 2 1/2 days backpacking. 
This does not replace the week-long EaglePoint summer camp program. You can sign up your additional Scouts under EaglePoint summer camp program (week-long). Start the registration process now by selecting the date your troop would like to attend, and then following the links connected to the date.

Tahosa Trek at EaglePoint: $365.00 total per Scout.  Adult: $35.00 per adult

For additional information, or to schedule a trek for your unit, contact Mary Ann Romero, the Outdoor Adventure Registrar.
