For the first year, we are excited to present the new ATV Program at Yawgoog Scout Reservation. Eligible Scouts can enter their names in the lottery between May 15-20. This sign-up will not guarantee participation in the program but will show your interest in participation. Scouts will be selected by a random lottery. Selected Scouts will be notified June 1. There will be a wait list for any participants in case availability opens up. It is important to note that this is the first year for this program and putting it forth as a pilot program. The hope is that this program will continue to grow over the years, but we want to ensure that a quality program is maintained for the entirety of the first season.
