Our next event will be a Family campout May 10th – 12th, at Picket Wire Canyonlands in the Comanche National Grasslands just outside of La Junta, Colorado.

We will not meet at the barn as normal, but rather meet onsite near the Withers Canyon Trailhead to accommodate families and their varying schedules.

We will camp two nights in the grasslands near the Withers Canyon Trailhead. This is just open land and there is no potable water or amenities and only one vault toilet.

This is one of the rare opportunities to bring along an RV or trailer on a scout outing, but again there is no power or hookups.

Any families that might need to borrow some troop gear are welcome to do so, just reach out to Ray Petree.

Being a Family Campout, each family should plan a menu for themselves. The Patrols will host deserts and goodies for the campfire ceremony Saturday night.

On Saturday we will day hike down the Withers Canyon Trail along the Purgatory River past the Dolores Mission to the Dinosaur tracks and have lunch, then return the same route. Round trip is an easy about 10 miles.

Scouts that would like to attend solo please let me know and we will pair you up with a family for the weekend to travel and dine.
