All Terrain Vehicles

Scouts who are 13 years or older can sign up to ride ATVs. Scouts must have a signed parent permission slip to ride.

There are 2 ATV sessions.  Each session can take a maximum of 8 riders so space is limited. For each session, the first 8 scouts to register and hand in their registration form and check on time will be given a slot. Scouts will be wait listed if a session fills up. Parents may sign up to ride ATVs but scouts will be given first priority. DO NOT MISS THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE! If you do not hand in your forms and check before the deadline, you risk losing your slot to someone on the waiting list.

The first ATV session is on Saturday.  This is an all-day session for riders who have never ridden ATVs at Camp Somers before. It includes a full safety and skills training class before riding on the trails. Scouts who choose this session will camp from Friday evening to Sunday morning.

The session on Sunday (8 am and 1 pm) is for scouts who have already been through Camp Somers’ full training class.  There is a refresher training class before riding on the trails. Scouts who choose the Sunday session will return on Sunday afternoon.

Meals

IMPORTANT:  Anyone interested in being a Grubmaster must camp starting from Friday. Grubmasters will prepare the usual meals: Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner, and Sunday breakfast. A decision about Sunday lunch will be made after we know the final registration numbers.

Reminder, opportunities to cook at campouts is limited this year so think about taking advantage of this trip to cook, especially if you are trying to rank up before the March Court of Honor.
