Bushcraft Campout

Troop, in absence of the AFA Freeze-O-Ree we will be camping national forest land up on our local Rampart Range.

This will be another chance to take advantage of some great winter camping and hiking. Saturday we will be hiking to Rampart Reservoir via the Rainbow Gulch Trail. While snowshoes are not necessary you may bring them or a set of Yak Trax. Along the way and back at camp we can work on rank and merit badge requirements so Be Prepared with items you look to accomplish.

The plan is to camp along the West side of Rampart Range Road South of the Rainbow Gulch Trail Head and North of FR-306. There are some pretty good spots in that area that go primarily unused this time of year.

This will be a car campout in a winter environment so please bring appropriate gear for the task, but as always try to pack as if you were backpacking. If you are new or need assistance, seek your youth leadership and the resources of your Boy Scout Handbook and Troop 287 Webpage Resources.

Let’s get the attendance up for this activity and have ourselves a good ‘ol Patrol Cook-off.

Terrain elevation change.
Route of the hike in and back from the reservoir. We will be camping somewhere south of the start point.

Sign up is at the top of the post. Ray-thanks for putting this together!
