Beaumont Low Ropes Challenge Course

Posted on Apr 5 2018 - 7:20pm
The weather tomorrow evening is predicted to be cold with a possibility of rain.  Therefore, we decided to move indoors and have rented Wohl Lodge to stay at both nights.  This will provide a warmer place for the boys to sleep since we're going to be outside all day Saturday.  If you're familiar with Beaumont, it's the cabin at the back of the parade field, adjacent to the Emerson dining hall.
They will still need sleeping bags and pillows but, will now be sleeping in bunk beds.  We're going to be patrol cooking all weekend.
It will be below freezing when we start out Saturday morning, only climbing into the 40's but, should be dry all day.   Please make sure everyone has layers of clothing to pile on and take back off if they get warmer later in the afternoon.
Bring a pair of boots to hike the mile plus from the lodge to the challenge course.  They should change into sneakers or dry shoes once we're on the course.
Everyone should bring a day pack with a water bottle, rain gear, a hat and light gloves.  Bring a favorite snack (portable) and a personal first aid kit.
We are leaving the cabin to head for the challenge course at 8:30 Saturday morning.  We have room for more boys to attend for the day on Saturday but, are full for overnights.
Bring your up-to-date medical form if you haven't given one to Mr. Powers in the last year (adults too).
Feel free to call or email me with any questions.

Bridger campsite is located closest to the showerhouse in West Camp, just off the northwest corner of the camp field; it is also fairly close to the shooting sports area, but farther from aquatics than some sites.  Still, nothing is more than 5 minutes walk away.  The site has an open central area ringed with patrol sites, including one hilltop site.  The site also includes a shelter and a latrine and can house approximately 40 campers.  Bridger is neighbored by Cody and Lewis campsites but is reasonably isolated from both.
