High Adventure Overnight Trip, Sept 30 – Oct 1

Hello Troop 648

We are in the final planning stages for our high adventure trip this weekend, Sept 30 – Oct 1 to Flagstaff and Humphreys Peak. We will be departing from the church Friday late afternoon and base camping near the trailhead. We will rise early, summit the peak (12,633 feet), climb down and return to Scottsdale in the late afternoon. The top of Humphreys Peak is the highest point in the state of AZ and the 12th highest in the U.S. It should be a great trip!

High adventure is about providing exhilarating experiences and activities that push our scouts toward greater physical and mental challenges in the outdoors. These are tailored to the unique abilities of an older scout and provide them opportunities to put to use the skills that they have learned throughout the scouting program. We try to schedule 1 or 2 a year. Hiking to 12,633′ is a good example of that!

If you and/or your Scout are planning to go, please let me know as soon as possible – [email protected] or (602) 793-1058.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
