APEX at GSR | SPRING BREAK

Apr 24 - Apr 28

SUS-STEM-ABILITY, SCREENS, SURVEYORS, BIKES, HIKES, FISHING, and GAMES!

April 24-28, 2017 – Pick & Choose how much or little you want to do

What are YOU doing over April School Vacation week?!?!  Piece together a ‘week to remember’ with APEX at GSR!  Open to individuals, buddy pairs, Patrols, Troops or Crews (for Boy Scouts aged 11-18 or co-ed Venturers aged 14-21 and anyone in these brackets interested in joining the Scouting program)!

Choose between $15 day-only options (which include lunch) or casually arrive the night before for $25 (which includes an evening crackerbarrel and breakfast before program starts) so you’re well-rested and ‘ready-to-go’ in the morning!  You can choose as many (or as few) of the days (or nights) as you wish!  Spend as little as $15 for the chance to earn two Merit Badges as part of a day-only program or up to $125 for up to five-days of vacation week fun completely at GSR (where you can earn up to six Merit Badges while doing so much more)!  (There is an optional off-site trip to spend all day at nearby Highland Mountain Bike Park which is an additional $125 – this will require a separate parental permission form).  Pick and choose what you want to do!
