OKPIK 2013

OKPIK Cold Weather Training  February 8 - 10, 2013 

Cold Weather Training is a Pre-requisite

Camp Southaven 10784 Rte. 98 Freedom, NY 14065

COST: $55.00 

Limited to the first 35 to register!

Open to Scouts, Scouters and Venturers, and Venture Crew Leaders. Minimum age 14 (with written permission from Troop/Crew Leader).

Mandatory pre-course meeting January 23. 2013 at 7 pm at the Council Service Center.

OKPIK is the Inuit word for the Arctic or Snowy Owl, and serves as the symbol for BSA High Adventure Cold Weather Training Program.

Okpik has two aims. One is to train the individual to be able to enjoy the outdoors and a camping experience in cold weather (and let’s face it, it’s not always warm and dry when Scouters camp).

The second aim is to train the trainer. We want to train Scout leaders and experienced Scouts in the unique skills of cold weather camping so that they can take the knowledge and skills they have learned on the course and bring them back to their units. We want to see all Scout units extend their camping season to all 12 months of the year.

Becoming Okpik trained is more than just taking a course; graduation carries with it the responsibility of taking the training back to your unit.
