2013 Mountaineering Camp

10 youth:  Half guys; half gals – Half Scouts; half Venturers – Ages 11-18.

One week at the Alpine Club of Canada’s Asulkan Hut (7,000′) in Rogers Pass, Glacier National Park, B.C.

Three days of mountaineering training then……climb Youngs Peak (9,341’/2,847 m)!

This is their week in pictures…

We owe a very special “Thank You” to Parks Canada for allowing us to have this amazing week in Glacier National Park.

If you want to see all those photos (and more) blasted past your eyes to the tune of some rocking music, then give this video a try:

Here Comes Dinner!

Note:  The Scouts didn’t know that the helicopter was bringing them fresh, hot pizza for dinner.
We had only arrived at the high camp a few minutes earlier after a challenging hike up the mountain.  I love it when a plan comes together!

    Check out this awesome adventure the the 5th West Vancouver Mountaineer Scouts had this past summer! A very unique camp for a unique Scouting Group (very envious). It makes me wish I lived on the west coast. I hoping to explore this program more in the near future so stay tuned.
