1:00pm: Participants arrive and check in with Summit Director at Summit Base office. Please pre-arrange early arrivals with our Trek Coordinator. Your group will be introduced to your guide who will show you to your site to drop off your gear. It is strongly suggested that the entire group arrives close to 1pm to allow sufficient time for preparation.

1:00pm to 5:00pm: Swim tests and medical reviews should take no longer than two hours. Your group and your guide will then begin equipment "shakedown" where your guide will cover proper packing techniques and also point out any items that may best be left behind. Organized and efficient groups will possibly have time to take part in our on-site high adventure activities with their guide.

5:00pm: Your group will return to their site to set up camp and prepare for dinner.

6:00pm: Dinner will be served in the Butler Pavilion at Summit Base.

After dinner your group will finalize distribution of group gear and food (supplied by Summit Base). You will have time to relax, get to know your guide and discuss the upcoming adventure.

One group leader and the guide will meet with the Summit Director and turn in unit rosters, wilderness swimming permission slips and review the group's account. Any last minute itinerary and/or transportation changes will be addressed.
