Note: On this trip, we will work together as a group and help each other out. We will also take breaks whenever we judge that it's appropriate. However, it's important for each person to commit to carrying his own weight in as much as he is able. Please plan to train ahead of time. See our website Resources page for training tips.
Parents: A participant's body size determines his pack weight. It is recommended that participants carry 25% of their body weight or less; however, depending on a participant's weight, his base pack weight (without group gear) may exceed 25% of his body weight. On trips longer than three days, it is expected that participants will carry a share of the group gear. Again, with parents' permission and depending on the participant's positive mental attitude, some participants' pack weights may exceed 25% of their body weight. If this is not acceptable, participants may need to delay their participation until the following year. *

Thank you for completing this questionnaire. We will be in touch with more trip information closer to our departure date.
