Arrival Day

Wingate by Wyndham Hotel in Lafayette

Upon arriving to Lafayette, LA, Swamp Base Trek 2 participants need to meet at the Wingate by Wyndham hotel, located at 702 E. Kaliste Saloom Rd., to begin their Swamp Base experience. At the hotel, Scouts will be assigned a room for the night and have their trek guide complete their trek orientation, safety overview, and gear shakedown. Because all of the gear needed for the trek is to be brought along with the crew, the trek guide will orient the crew on the proper use of their hammocks, cooking devices, and water purification devices. Additionally, the crew will learn the routine for setting up a campsite in the swamp wilderness. Please see the ‘Trek 2 Gear List’ for a complete list of required and recommended gear.

Each crew will take a Trek Crew Photo on their Arrival Day. Please consider wearing your Scout uniform or matching trek shirts.
