This is the second year I have served on staff for OKPIK. Okpik is the BSA model cold weather camping training. We teach snow shelter building, saftey, proper clothing, sleeping warm, traveling, risk management, cooking for cold weather and lots more. This year was a really good course. Just enough snow to build many different kinds of shelters, and with 23 participants, we'll have many more Troops with year-round camping in our Council now!
