Cold weather camping skills training.

Bay-Lakes Council will be conducting Okpik – a cold weather camping skills training program in January of 2018. Okpik is intended to train Boy Scout and Venturing youth and adult leaders in proper winter camping techniques so they can take these skills back to their units and extend their unit’s camping season to a 12 month program.

The program will be conducted in two parts:

The first is an indoor training session on Saturday, January 13 from 8:00 am to 4:00pm. The indoor program will include instruction on topics such as: proper clothing, First Aid, sleeping gear, shelter building, cold weather menu planning, hypothermia, equipment and packing, winter games, and outdoor activities. Attendance at the indoor session is required before attending the outdoor experience.

The second is an outdoor training session Friday, January 26 through Sunday, January 28 at Bear Paw Scout Camp. The weekend includes additional skills training, outdoor games and activities and an overnight camping experience where participants will put into practice what they have learned during the indoor program.

Participants must be at least 13 years old and youth must hold a leadership position in their unit. The weekend training is not intended to be a unit camping trip. Two deep leadership is required for each unit sending youth to the training.
