Camp Tomahawk Snow Base: Gear Instructions

Camp Tomahawk Snow Base: Gear Instructions - click to enlarge

A lot of our morning at Snow Base was spent going over gear and safety. The margin for error in winter camping is much narrower than the rest of the year: get a little snow in your boot, drop a glove in the woods, or break a binding on your skis, and you can go from cheerful to miserable in seconds. Luckily our activities were close to the main camp, and our guides were experienced and helpful, so we were rarely in danger of more than a little discomfort. But experiencing some of the risks and thrills of challenging the outdoors is a good thing for young Scouts, especially if they’re going to try some of the high adventure activities in coming years!
