This month, the Troop heads to Wisconsin for our traditional Skiing and Tubing trip at the Sunburst Winter Sports Park near Kewaskum, Wisconsin. We’ll camp on Friday and Saturday in cabins at the Indian Mounds Scout Reservation in Oconomowoc, Wis just west of Milwaukee.
On Saturday, the troop will take to the hills from 10 AM to 1 PM. Scouts must choose between skiing, snowboarding or tubing. Each has their own costs, equipment and waiver forms.
To participate, each Scout will need to bring the following on Feb 13th, depending on their choices:
1. The Troop’s Permission Slip. Get it HERE
2. $15 cash to pay to the patrol leader so the patrol can buy their own food.
3. The appropriate waiver form for your activity (See Below).
4. The fees for your chosen activity, as follows:
3 Hours Tubing: $22.00 (optional NO release waiver is add’l $5)
Lift Ticket (Skiing or Snowboarding): $30.00 (optional NO release waiver is add’l $10)
Equipment Rental (Skis or Snowboard and Boots): $15.00 (optional NO release waiver is add’l $25)
Helmet Rental: $5.00
Beginners Lesson: $8.00
No Helmet is required for Tubing. Scouts may bring their own equipment and helmets for skiing and snowboarding. The lesson is available for those going out for the first time but otherwise is not required.
There are two kinds of waivers: Release and No Release. (“No Release” Waivers cost extra and could be considered ‘insurance.’)
