BEAR CROSSING 5: Lost Bearadise

Bear Crossing 5: Lost Bearadise

Registration is Now Open!

August 9th – 12th 2018 – Kansas City, Mo

For our 2018 expedition, we’re offering two pass levels to choose from: the Scout pass and the Explorer pass.  We want you to be able to choose your own adventure and these two options give you more flexibility.

In addition to your expedition pass, we listened to your suggestions from past events and are offering two special add on excursions which are available for an additional charge. More information is available on our excursions page

And back by popular demand this year, we’re also offering the Fang & Paw Society as an upgrade to your expedition pass.  For an additional $50 on top of your expedition pass, you’ll receive added benefits such as drink coupons, private parties, and other perks TBD. But here’s the catch.  There are only 75 available, so don’t wait to upgrade! When they’re sold, they’re gone!

What’s Included in Each Level?

Below are the highlights of what you’ll receive with each pass level.  This list is just preliminary, additional items will be added as we get closer to the event.  Be sure to check out the schedule tab on the website for more details!


Buy Early and Save!

The price for either a Scout pass or Explorer pass will be dependent on the number of passes sold leading up to the beginning of Bear Crossing.  And one final thing…the earlier you buy, the more you save!

Important Hotel Information

While the Chiefs do not have a home football game this year, there will be baseball all weekend!  Our Royals and St. Louis Cardinals will play at the K!  Due to the potential influx of baseball fans for this interstate series, we’re asking you to get your hotel room reserved as soon as possible.  The hotel is expected to be full all weekend.  If there are any rooms left after our room block has expired ($94 per night + applicable taxes and fees), you will be subject to the elevated pricing for the weekend.  Your credit card WILL NOT be charged at the time you make a room reservation.
