- Pitching Tents & Tying Knots
Scorecards are used in each of the five areas to determine the efficiency, skill, and accuracy of the skill being demonstrated. Sign up for the competition as a team, or an individual. Individuals will be added to a team day-of (buddy requests considered!).
All participants in ANY session will receive a Camp Small Valley Survival Challenge patch. One patch per girl for the entire series.
