ADVENTURE AWAITS YOUR UNIT THIS SUMMER AT
LOG CABIN WILDERNESS CAMP!
 
Must have two deep leadership

 

Welcome to Log Cabin Wilderness Camp, the Greater Los Angeles Area Council’s high adventure base in the eastern Sierra Nevada, twelve miles from Yosemite National Park.  Our High Country Gateway and Sierra Nevada Mountain Adventure programs offer a high adventure experience like none other in the world. Your troop/crew can hike through the mountains that John Muir called “the range of light.” You can climb mountains over 12,000 ft. high. You can stand at the top of the highest waterfall in America and photograph the same scenes as Ansel
Adams.
 

In the Gateway program, you will hike through the second oldest national park in the U.S. and while it is one of the most visited, your chances of seeing more than a dozen people are remote.  The goal of this program is to provide young men and women a safe, challenging adventure that will result in a more confident and self-assured individual. Through High Adventure, an individual will have the chance to experience and stretch their limits proving to themselves that they are capable in many areas that they may never have thought possible.


The Mountain Adventure program will teach your unit technical climbing and belaying and how to work together as a team to achieve their final goal of standing atop 13,325 ft. Mt. Warren.  Participants will have the opportunity to set and meet both individual and group goals and experience a lasting sense of accomplishment. They will focus on outdoor ethics and enhance personal skills along with backcountry expertise.

Since not all requirements can be worked on in camp, advance notice is required in order to assign a merit badge counselor and determine which requirements must be completed ahead of time and which can be completed at Log Cabin.

 

A High Adventure Experience can be a defining force that changes a youth’sentire outlook. The enthusiasm generated, the recognition achieved, the challenges overcome, and the independence enjoyed will remain with him for a lifetime.
