Troop 850 will be rock climbing in May at Red River Gorge Via Ferrata, located about 2 ½ hours from Cincinnati near Natural Bridge, KY. This is consistently among the campouts Scouts mention as one of their favorites. Check out the photos and other information at SouthEast Mountain Guides website. We will be camping nearby at Natural Bridge State Park campground. The cost for this campout is higher than typical at $60 per person; this is because the climbing fee is $43. The actual cost to the Troop including food, camping fees, and transportation is anticipated to be slightly more than what you pay, the troop will cover the additional expense.
Everyone who plans on rock climbing must submit a climbing waiver, and all Scouts must complete the usual Troop permission slip. Please turn in all required forms with payment by Tuesday, May 7th.
