    • Frontier cooking

    A frontiersman shirt, primitive lodges, food and camping gear are provided.

    1. Register online on Campwise. Campers should register at least two weeks in advance in order to secure a spot. Camp equipment that may have been included in your registration is not guaranteed to late registrants.
    2. [Review the Frontiersman Workbook prior to camp].
    3. Pack all the items on the Equipment list yourself! That way, you know where to find it.  Your Frontiersman rep is Squints. Email him if you have any questions.
    4. Be ready to check in at Camp at 10 am on Friday. Please be on time! You will probably have to miss a day of school. All prescription medications must be checked in with the Camp Medical Officer when you arrive at Camp.
    5.  Arrange for your parents to attend your graduation at 2 pm. on Sunday; you may go home with them after the ceremony.
    6.  Inform your Outpost Commander of the merit requirements you achieved at camp. Also, tell your Commander and others of your great Adventure.
