Winter Registration Info

Okpik Program

Located at Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base, Okpik is the premier winter camping program in the Boy Scouts of America. The Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base is the site of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Cold Weather Camping Development Center.

All trips are fully outfitted and provisioned, including almost all of the personal gear necessary to stay warm in the winter. A highly trained staff member, called an Interpreter, accompanies all crews on their trek.

In the 2022-23 Okpik Season, you will see an updated registration process and simplified trip selection.
