For those who do not receive Boy's Life magazine, the September issue featured Northern Tier's Okpik winter adventure program. The magazine's Website has some great videos from the program featuring dog sledding, shelter building, and snowshoeing: http://boyslife.org/home/video/9742/winter-at-northern-tier/
The Outdoor Channel's "Scouting For Adventure" show also featured the program this season in its first and second episodes. Check out the Okpik episode trailer at http://www.outdoorchannel.com/shows/scoutingforadventure/videos.aspx
Are you a leader with a unit is interested in participating in Okpik? You are still in luck as there are plenty of openings! Check out the Website at http://www.ntier.org/OKPIK.html
to learn more about the program. A list of available slots is also available
(pdf document). If a slot is not available you may want to call (218-365-4811) as crew registrations are constantly in flux.
This is also the second year the "Webelos OKPIK Weekend" (WOW) program is being offered. This is a great recruiting opportunity for troops as it allows 1st and 2nd year Webelos to come along and participate.
