Scouts & Parents,
Summer Camp signup is upon us. We are heading to Denali High Adventure Scout Base 11-16 July. So far we have 24 Scouts on the list. Please review the camp list and let me know this week if you would like to join us. Cost is $365 for scouts and $180 for adults. We will need a minimum of four leaders to signup for camp. Deadline to signup is next Sunday 28 February. We are asking for $150 deposit for all scouts. We will setup a payment schedule for the balance due.
So for NOW we need a commitment to go to camp...talk to myself or Juliann Nevells if initial deposit can not be made at this time. Troop scholarships are also available on a case-by-case basis. Please see Juliann Nevells Additionally, GAC has scholarships available thru the Great Alaska Council. Remember Scout Accounts are king......

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 (Denali). 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.
