Spring Break Adventures 2018

2018 Spring Break Scout SIGNUP Link!
Paria Sign up DEADLINE: November 29, 2017. Early commitment date because of the BLM lottery to get a trip permit.
UPDATE: We DID get two permits. Therefore, we have room for a total of two crews of 10 members.
We hope to offer a challenging and active program for the Scouts of Troop 171. This involves a strong commitment from Scouts AND adults. One of the limiting factors for trip planning is adult vacation time. This survey will help both the troop and families in planning.

Our "big four" are Spring Break (3 levels), Ben Delatour Scout Ranch, Summer Mini Adventure, and Alaska!

With the vacation limits in mind, here are the dates and needs of our major trips:

• Spring Break [March 24 - 31] - Adventures detailed below. Adults: 3 per crew with up to 5 crews!
1. Desert Slot Canyons [1st and 2nd year Scouts]
2. Paria Canyon Adventure [SIGN UP DEADLINE November 29, 2017] <-- DEADLINE FOR PERMIT
3. Desert High Adventure [advanced trip with previous experience and trip leader approval
4. Ben Delatour [June 10 - 16, 2018]
5. Summer Mini Adventure Backpack [typically August but exact date TBA]
6. Alaska High Adventure [July 10 - 24, 2018]

Drivers Note: all of the Spring Break trips are in southern Utah and northern Arizona.

IMPORTANT - THIS FORM IS A COMMITMENT TO ALL OF THE ADVENTURES. NOTE: Paria Canyon Adventure has a deadline of November 29 so that we can apply for a permit on December 1.

The availability of all trips is dependent upon qualified adult leadership and pre-trip requirements met by the Scouts.
