Winter Cold Weather
There is no set BSA temperature/wind chill threshold for cancellation/postponement, as winter camping/activities training and preparation is part of the BSA program, which includes training Scouts to be adaptable and safe.
The event has arrangements for warming fires at each station and an indoor warming area with hot cocoa.
Units and individuals should evaluate their winter activity knowledge, skill level, and gear to make personal decisions related to participation.
