Akela's Council with Family Odyssey is a unique approach to Scout Leader Training. Adult Cub Scout Leaders attend Akela's Council, and youth Scouters may attend Timberline NYLT. The rest of the family gets a great Scouting experience, too. It will be challenging at times, but it is well worth it!
Please understand that Akela's Council training is intensive, running from right after breakfast until dinner time. Many Cub Scout Leaders want to attend this valuable training but don't want to leave their families home for a full week. Family Odyssey gives you the opportunity to come to the mountain together. However you will not spend much time doing the same activities once the programs start. This might be compared to a normal work week at home. You'll each have unique experiences during the day and come together at meal time to share what you've done with each other. Wednesday night is Family Night when you can enjoy Camp Tifie's activities together.
Location and Facilities
Tifie (ty' fee) is a new scout camp near Mount Pleasant, Utah, about an hour south of Provo. Its mountain terrain is rugged and beautiful. Activities include a heated outdoor pool, shooting ranges, COPE course, and horseback riding. Tifie has flushing toilets, shower facilities, and each camp site has a covered pavilion. The acronym TIFIE stands for Teaching Individuals & Families Independence through Entrepreneurship.
Plan to arrive at Tifie on either Saturday or Sunday (July 20-21). There will not be time to set up camp before the programs start on Monday morning.
Campsites are shared with at least one other family. You may request who to share a campsite with.
Trailer sites are $25 and must be reserved at registration. FULL-SIZE FOUR WHEEL DRIVE TRUCKS ARE REQUIRED TO PULL TRAILERS UP THE MOUNTAIN. You won't make it up to camp without a 4x4, especially if it rains. There are NO trailer hook-ups or power. Trailer sites may be farther down the hill than the campsites.
All meals are provided from Monday breakfast through Saturday lunch. If you have food allergies or special dietary needs, please make note of them when you register.
Plan to provide your own food before Monday morning.
