Pellissippi Adventures

September 23 - September 25





The Council Camping Committee is sponsoring a Bike/Hike/Paddle event to “show off” everything Camp Pellissippi has to offer on the weekend of Sept. 23rd-25th. 


This spring, a new bike trail was constructed that connects Camp Pellissippi to the 20+ miles of hiking and mountain bike trails on the TVA Loyston Point property.  In addition, a new remote campsite will soon be constructed on the connector trail.  This new campsite and trail would be perfect for a troop to do a day trip or an overnight trip from Camp Pellissippi.  Either camp in the Adirondacks, tent camp or backpack to the remote campsite and start from there. The Loyston Point property has 4 different loops of varying length and difficulty that can accommodate a beginner’s hike or bike trip or can be combined to make a much more challenging outing.


This event is primarily for individual units and those units will be responsible for their scouts and scouters and will have to meet the Guide to Safe Scouting requirements for the activities that they participate in.  The AB Medical Form will be required (units keep the forms).  Units will have to provide appropriate adult leadership but may combine with other agreeable units to meet the necessary requirements.  Units are responsible for cooking.


Please Note: Kayaking long distances or on open water requires previous experience (No beginners).  At this time the Council has a very limited number of kayaks for this event and canoes may need to be substituted. 


Swimming classifications will be verified or a swim check will need to be done at Camp Pellissippi.


Some items for this event are limited and will go to those that register first.
