Have you ever wanted to be trained in building snow shelters, spending the weekend having fun in the snow, or meeting new scouts and scouters?  Then you need to sign up for Okpik.

Okpik is state-of-the-art training to give leaders, (both youth and adult), confidence in taking groups into a cold environment and support a year-round camping program. Our cold weather training is appropriate only for those leaders and campers who already have basic Scouting skills and mild weather camping experience. Our training includes skills that can ensure a successful, fun and safe cold weather camping experience. The signup link for this fun training experience is below.

Information and Registration

If you decide to join a session, please email Mrs. Lipman as we are still looking for trained Quinzee builders to assist during winter camping.  To become trained you must attend Okpik twice.  Once as a participant and once as a leader.
