NiteHike Kit!

NiteHike is only a couple days away! We felt this was a good time to let everyone know who will be participating that there are a few things they are required to have the evening of the hike. There's two lists below...one is gear for the group as a whole, and one is gear for each member to have.

Just a reminder, all hike groups should have the following:

- two leaders (your group may have to hike with another group to meet minimums)
- proof of registration in your organization. For Scouts, this is a print out of the section MMS with attending youth highlighted.
- medical certificates / forms for all attending members
- a cell phone in case of emergency
- large ziplock / waterproof bag to keep hike papers in
- basic first aid kit with bandaids and tylenol / aspirin
- spare water bottle and flashlights / batteries
- camera to take pictures for the group

In addition, each youth should have:

- clothes appropriate for the evening, along with a waterproof jacket and socks
- good, proper hiking shoes for hitting the trail
- snacks to provide energy throughout the evening
- a flashlight (trails are VERY dark)
- a water bottle (there are a couple places throughout the park to fill it)
- a travel mug for hot chocolate at stations that are providing it (stations do NOT provide cups)
- a sturdy backpack to hold everything in, that's fitted properly for comfort
