Are you ready to TREK?
"If ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (D&C 38:30)
Get There Safely
- Get in Shape: Participants will need to hike approximately 13 miles during TREK, including 7 miles the first day. Get ready for TREK by being physically active and hiking.
- Pioneer Clothing: Each participant needs 2 sets of period-appropriate clothing (see "Clothing Information"), including sturdy, comfortable shoes (not necessarily “period appropriate,” and broken in to avoid blisters).
- Bucket (no larger than 5 gal bucket): Everyone will pack their stuff in a bucket which doubles as a suitcase and camp chair. Buckets may be decorated and have a seat cover, if desired (see "Instructions for a Bucket Seat"). Please put your name on your bucket!
- Pack: Refer to the "Trek Packing List". Set aside one set of trek clothes for the drive.
- Find an Ancestor: Each trek participant should find a name of a pioneer ancestor or other pioneer to trek “in honor of” and bring their story to share. Need help? Ask a ward Family History Consultant.
- Spiritual Challenge: All youth and leaders attending TREK are invited to complete the spiritual challenge posted on the website. The challenge includes reading and pondering conference talks, doing family history, and making a personal sacrifice.
Get There Safely
- Register: All participants must be registered with proper permission and medical forms filled out by parents. Make sure you update your medical information, if needed, before TREK.
- Travel: Trekkers will travel to the venue by stake on buses (it is about a 4 hour drive). Wear trek clothes for the drive up (there is no place to change once we get there).
