KickBack Info!!!!!! ITS FINALLY HERE

Venturing Kickback 2018.jpgAvoid cabin fever and join us for our 17th annual Venturing Kickback weekend February 23-25 at Gerber Scout Reservation. This is a weekend especially for our Venturers who are ready for some wintertime fun at camp.

So what can you do? Plenty!

Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, shooting sports, repelling, ice fishing, and climbing are just a few of the outdoor activities you’ll be able to choose from. When you’re ready to warm up, you can play board games or hang out and catch up with friends inside the camp’s cabins.

For Venturers who can’t get enough of the outdoors, we’re giving you the option of sleeping outside under the stars.

So, bring a great attitude, weather-appropriate clothing, board games, toiletries, a sleeping bag, and whatever else you think you’ll need to make this weekend one to remember.

Meals we will be providing are: Friday cracker barrel; breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday; and a Sunday breakfast.

Check-in will begin at 6 p.m. on Friday in the dining hall with a 10 a.m. check-out on Sunday.

The cost is $50 until January 28. The price goes up to $55 after that. There will be a $10 late fee which will bring the registration fee to $65 after February 11. Walk-ins will be welcome.

Please bring a new or gently used coats, winter hats, wool socks, gloves or mittens for a donation to a local organization that helps families in need.
