Enchanted Rock Climbing Campout
October 7-9
Climbing, Rapelling, Backpacking at Enchanted Rock State Park


Scouts will have the opportunity to work on requirements for the Climbing Merit Badge.  We will be working with an experienced climbing outfitter, Rock-About, for a day of climbing, belaying, and rappelling activities.
Scouts should plan to bring warm clothing and shoes appropriate for hiking and climbing. 
Use the layer method and bring a daypack to stow excess clothes as you warm up.  Be sure to bring at least 2 liters of water, closed toe shoes (hiking, tennis or approach shoes), sunscreen, bug spray and comfortable clothing.
Troop 266 will  have one campsite located on the 'front', non-backpacking side of Enchanted Rock, for Scouts who are not yet ready to carry a backpack for the short hike to the primitive camping area on the 'back' (west) side of the park. 
 Scouts should bring $10 - 20 for lunch on the Sunday return trip, and to cover spending money for other stops along the way. Each camper should bring a sack dinner on Friday for the trip out to Enchanted Rock.    
Please complete the following permission forms, release/waivers,  and submit them to Mr. Willcockson. The cost for this campout will be $85 per climber, and $10 for those not climbing. Payment can be made by a check made out to Troop 266 or by PayPal below.  

Permission forms, waivers and payment are due by Friday, September 30, 2016.
