Most meals will be family style. This means all scouts will bring one meal item to share with their fellow scouts. Meals are as follows:

Friday night dinner – hot meal (family style)

Saturday breakfast – a quick option for breakfast (cereal, fruit, etc) (family style)

Saturday lunch – individual meal – plan a lightweight/easy lunch (can potentially be a hot lunch as well)

Saturday dinner – hot meal, family style

Sunday breakfast – hot meal, family style

Scouts may bring a small cooler to transport their food to the campsite, however their Saturday lunch must fit in their daypack

Saturday morning scouts will help the Carolina Climbers Coalition with a service project at the climbing area, then begin climbing. After climbing, scouts will assist in helping to pack up the climbing gear with the instructors, and then the troop will head over to the Curtis Creek Campground. Sunday morning the troop will pack up early and head to Linville Caverns for a short hike or sightseeing.

Temps can get cool at this time, please dress in layers and pack accordingly. There is a small chance of light rain as well projected at this time.
