Tahosa Trek adds a standalone option seperate 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 TahosaHigh Adventure Base 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 Tenderfoots 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.
For additional information, or to schedule a trek for your unit, contact Mary Ann Romero, the Colorado Adventure Registrar.
