Bridger-Teton Registration Notes

Know your Council name and Number:
As with other national OA events, all registration for Bridger-Teton is by council contingent. We do not have lodge names or numbers in our database, just the council name and number. Please use your council name and number when asking any questions to help speed up getting the answer.

Contingents that have members from multiple councils:
Some council contingents include youth or adults from another council. This is usually done to ensure two-deep adult leadership. Participants from one council who are coming as part of another council's contingent for Bridger-Teton should know that council's name and number, in addition to their own.

Check-In location:
Contingent check-in processing for Bridger-Teton is planned to take place inside the main West doors of the Jackson Hole High School. If you are driving to the school, you will turn off the main highway to High School Road, then go West on the road past the school, then turn left on the access road, then turn left again into the West side main parking lot. From the west lot, enter the school through main West doors. If you are using the shuttle from the airport, the vans will drop you by the North-West corner of the school, and it is a short walk to the main West doors from there.

Special Arrival or Departure dates:
To accommodate flight schedules, some contingents have had to make special arrangements to arrive early or depart later than the regular schedule. To avoid any surprises, please confirm any special arrival or departure arrangements via email to our registration director, Joe Glenski (, before July 10th. Please email directly to Joe for this confirmation.

"Form C" required:
All participants must complete the ArrowCorps5 Participant Agreement and Information Form ("Form C") , available on the national OA website ( This form provides the details on each participant, including which recreation options they prefer. A Form C must be completed and signed by each participant (and their parent/guardian if the participant is under 18). Once completed, Contingent Coordinators should gather copies of Form C from their participants, obtain Scout Executive approval, and send the forms to the national OA office. All Form C's were due at the national OA office by May 1. If you did not send your Form C in yet, do so right away.
