"Now is the time to get into the Adventure and Experience the Adirondack's"

3rd Year Trekking Program

This program provides a four day and three night experience in the Fishbrook Pond area of the Adirondack Park.  The scouts will hike with two adult leaders and work on a total of five merit badges.  

They will work as a team to navigate to the different locations, cook and clean up each days meals, and keep each others spirits high as they experience all that the Adirondack Park has to give. 

Each scout must be at least a third year camper, or at least thirteen years old, have attended a BSA resident camp as a camper, and be at least a first class scout.  

We are planning on working on five merit badges.  They are:

  • Backpacking
  • Orienteering
  • Geocaching
  • Nature
  • and more more that will be picked by the second adult leader each week

Scouts will receive a partial in each badge that can be finished by his Troop.  We will cover all the requirements possible to do on the trail.

Two adults will be with the crew.  One is a staff member of Camp Wakpominee and will be National Camp School trained, and the other will be a troop leader.  

The cost of the program is the same as a week at Camp Wakpominee.  You can sign up to attend the week your Troop is coming, or you could come another week that works best for you.  

Crews will be kept to a maximum of eight scouts each week, and they will be selected on a "first come, first go" process.  

We are planning on the following timeline:

  • Sunday- Normal Check-In
  • Monday- Preparations and merit badge work
  • Tuesday to Friday- Trekking in the Adirondacks
  • Saturday- Return home with your Troop

If you have questions please feel free to contact Julie VanAmburgh

Adult Leaders Needed

We are looking for the second adult leader for each week during camp.  This leader will attend the camp for free, earn a special Wakpominee Trekking Guide Patch, and will teach the scouts one merit badge on the trail.  If you are interested please contact, Rich Stockton.
