This year our boys will be attending camp at Denali High Adventure Scout Base.
About Denali High Adventure Scout Base (DHASB). DHASB is Alaska's newest camp that offers a rustic Scouting experience. Denali is located in the shadow of Mt. Mckinley, North America's tallest peak. We offer Backpacking, River, and cycling adventures in addition to traditional summer camp programs.
DHASB is at the cutting edge of BSA programing... literally. The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America is exploring pistols as a program element for Boy Scout aged youth. In the past pistols had only been approved for youth registered as Venturing Scouts. Great Alaska Council has been approved as a council for this program and will be offering pistol instruction and shooting as a part of the program at Denali.
In addition to that we will be offering a first year camper program, troop based cooking, and experiences that you won't be able to find at our other camps such as blacksmithing, blackpowder shotgun, and mountain man programs.
The ASM in charge of camp this year is Mr. Carl Lundgren, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 907-696-3786. We need Parent Volunteers to Camp also: Please contact Mr. Lundgren. If you can do one day or a whole week any time is very much appreciated.
Camp costs for scout is $365 for "early bird" and $180 for adult campers. Transportation will be extra similar to last year as the scouts will be transported via bus.
