Notes

  1. Arrive SJV fed and ready to go.
  2. Bring lots of water for the weekend - the water is not reliable at Enchanted Rock
  3. Check the weather: you'll need rain gear and sunscreen!
  4. We will hike in 2 miles.
  5. Attention younger Scouts – we will be working on requirement 1a and b for Second Class. This is an excellent opportunity to learn these skills and meet the requirement.
  6. Camping Merit Badge - We should also be able to complete section b or requirement 9 of the camping merit badge. This is a hard section to complete so I strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity
