The total distance of this hike will be around 10 miles over 2 days (Saturday and Sunday). So, with our light backpacks this will be a fun and relatively easy adventure with free time. Safely minimizing the weight we carry will be the goal on this trip.  This will be a patrol competition, including the senior patrol and the adult patrol. So come join us!

See the attachment links for more detailed information and the permission slip, which is due September 8th.

Start planning what gear you will be taking and use this spreadsheet to help total up your packed weight!

Ape Caves Overnight Outing PDF Print E-mail

The focus of this outing is exploring the Ape Cave in Gifford National Forest.  However, we will also work on our cooking skills and have the opportunity to spend some time at an indoor swimming pool.  This outing is for Boy Scouts 13 years old and younger and for Webelos.  Webelos must have a parent or responsible adult (21 years or older) attending the outing with them.


We will meet at Calvin Presbyterian Church at 5:00 p.m. Friday, June 26th.  Once there we will setup camp.  Please bring a sack dinner.

In the morning we will cook as a group.  Each scout and adult will need their own backpack cooking stove.   As a group we will go through step by step how to cook a one-pot breakfast on a backpack stove.  Once we have finished our breakfast we will make our sack lunch, clean up camp and head to the cave.

The trip to the cave will take about an hour. Once at the cave we will gear up and head inside. Each scout and adult needs to bring at least 2 light sources. I also strongly recommend bring a glow stick. If you bring a daypack you will want to attach a glow stick to it so that you can find it again if you set it down in the cave. No food is allowed in the cave. However, each scout should bring water with them. Each scout must wear long pants. No shorts will be allowed in the cave. We will supply helmets to wear in the cave.

We will go through the cave as a group.  We will have scouts of various ages and abilities so it is important that we stay together as a group.

Once we have finished the cave we will eat our lunch and then head back to camp.  Back at camp we will take down our tents and pack our gear.  Once we are done we will then grab our swim gear and head to the pool.  Afterwards it will be time to head home.  We plan on returning to Tigard at about 5:00 p.m.


Family units who wish to can stay an additional night, provided we have enough drivers to get the remaining scouts back to Tigard.
