What if I am not sure I can go?
Please register anyway, so your
option to go is kept open. We want every eligible
youth in the stake to participate in this once in a
lifetime experience. Please make every effort to go.
What if I didn't register by the due date?
That is ok. But please register
as soon as possible. We need to know how many are
going in order to plan for the food, transportation,
and other facilities. We will accept some late
registrations, but please help us by registering as
soon as possible.
Will I be asked to fast on trek?
No. You will be well fed three
times a day, plus additional snacks. We do not intend
to ask anyone to go hungry at anytime during the trek
What do I do if I have special dietary needs?
Contact Sister Phillips or
someone on the food committee and find out what is on
the planned menus. Most of the meals will have several
different food items to pick from. If certain foods
cause problems, you will be able to eat additional
amounts of the other items.
How will we travel to the trailhead?
Wards will provide transportation
for their youth to the trailhead and back to Stake
How much does trek cost?
Youth and leaders will not be
asked to pay for the trek. The costs of the actual
trek itself will be covered by the Stake.
May I bring my cowboy hat?
Cowboy hats are appropriate for
young men. We recommend that young women wear bonnets.
I need to buy expensive hiking boots?
No. A sturdy pair of running or
cross training shoes will work fine. Any shoes that
are comfortable for walking on a gravel road will
work. If it hurts your feet to walk over small rocks
with your shoes, you need something with a thicker
sole. The most important thing is that you have
already walked several miles (at least 20), in the
shoes you plan to trek in. All new shoes (especially
unbroken-in hiking boots) are notorious for causing
blisters. Your old shoes will work better than new
ones. Bring and extra pair of shoes (if one pair
causes blisters, the other pair may very well rub in
different places). Moccasins, sandals, clogs, or
sturdy slippers will feel really good on your feet (in
camp) after 13 miles of trekking!
What to Bring
May I bring a watch?
Yes, but only if it is
inexpensive and very practical. Don't bring jewelry or
watches that would be sorely missed if damaged or
Will I be required to pull a handcart all the way by
No. Each handcart will be
assigned to a group (family) of about 8 to 10 people.
You will all take turns pulling your cart.
