The word Okpik (ook’-pic), which means Snowy Owl in the Inuit language, has identified the Winter Camping program at Northern Tier since it began in 1971. Representing innovation in the field of winter camping, the Okpik program has grown to nationwide proportions. Since October 1984, Okpik has been the approved name and symbol for the Boy Scouts of America’s National Cold Weather Camping Programs.
We are very fortunate that the Baden Powell Council is offering this exciting program to all Scouts 13 and up. This is not a Lodge program. Otahnagon Lodge is promoting this program as part of our overall responsibility to support and promote the council wide camping program.
