Knots and Lashings


Knots and Lashings

Time to Get All Knotted Up!

Are you the life of the party? You certainly will be when you showcase your incredible new knot skills! We've got ready made kits with ropes and instructions to help teach the most basic and the most interesting knots.

Who can participate?

Knots are for everyone, but to make it simple we've developed two different skill kits. Our introductory skill kit is for younger learners and typically focuses on advancement requirements for Cub Scouts (6 - 10 year olds). Our advanced skill kit is for learners who are a little bit older and typically focuses on advancement for Boy Scouts (11+ year olds).

How much do I have to pay to become a knot expert?

Nothing! Like most things at camp, knots and lashing skill kits are free to use as part of your program.

When can I start tying?

As soon as you arrive at camp. Simply check out a kit of supplies from our campmaster building.

Can one person know too many knots?

Certainly 'knot'! In addition to dazzling your friends with your skills, you'll likely be the last one voted off the island if you're ever on Survivor!
