The 20th Anniversary of Weekend on Ropes is Fast Approaching!

Join us for the 20th Annual Weekend on Ropes October 7-9.  Experience the beauty of Camp Orr while hanging from a rope! Rappelling and climbing opportunities ranging from beginner to advanced! Build your confidence on the 30ft climbing tower and challenge yourself with Gar Holes' 230ft rappel! This year we will be offering a new venturing activity especially designed for scouts 14 years or older, the Horseshoe Canyon Trek!
Is your troop new to climbing or rappelling? No worries. Westark Area Council will be providing all the necessary gear for the weekend. If you or your units have personal harnesses, helmets, belay devices, and gloves, please bring them to registration Friday night for proper inspection.
This year, participants will receive a t-shirt and patch for their collection. Also, the first 200 participants to sign up will receive a glow in the dark Nalgene water bottle! Please make sure you sign up online at www.westarkbsa.org as soon as possible. T-shirts may not be available for those that sign up after September 26th.
Outdoor activities at Camp Orr will include multiple climbing sites, rappelling sites, and tower program. Indoor activities will include indoor tread wall climbing, crate stacking competition, and a required Climb-On-Safely class for unit leaders planning to take their units climbing or rappelling.
ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BRING:
1. A copy of your current BSA ANNUAL HEALTH AND MEDICAL RECORD PART A, B, & C
2. A copy of the Westark PARENTAL CONSENT AND PARTICIPANT HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT
Please visit the Weekend on Ropes event tab in the online calendar to download all required forms as well as an informative leader’s guide with a map of Camp Orr, gear list of necessities for the weekend, and the program agenda. Hope to see you all there!
