July 2017 Camping Trip Details

Hello, Trailmen!

We will be camping this coming weekend, from Friday night through Saturday – finishing up after lunch. It’s a quick trip, and super-short notice (sorry about that!), because we just got permission to try out a great new camp site near the Page’s house.

Who: Woodlands Trail, Navigators, and Adventurers
What: 1-night camping trip
When: Friday 7/21, 630 pm setup
Where: We’ll park at the Page’s house and hike in – less than 1/2 mile.
Why? Because camping is awesome!

Menu and packing list will be sent out in the next day or so.

The cost will be $8 per person.

Also, our Trailmen are learning about outdoor cooking this month, so Navigators/Adventurers – plan on doing some cooking!

Please call/text Steve to confirm you will be there, so we can plan appropriate food quantities.

Walk worthy!

Final Details for Camp-In

Dear Trailmen Parents-

Here are the final  (read “Simon forgot”) details for this week-end’s Camp-In.

Eating-  Yes, we are going to eat.  This is a bowl, spoon and cup (or mug) camp-in.  Those are the only utensils that are needed for the meals.

Knives – Dads, if you have a pocket knife or two, please bring them with you.  If your son is over 10 years old, he may bring a lock blade knife if the blade is under 4 inches long.  We are going to learn about knives and do some whittling.

Chuck box– If you have a donation to the chuck box, please bring it with you.  This will give us a chance to sort thru them and decide what best suits our needs.

Sleds–  If you have one, feel free to bring it.  There may be some snow left.  If you have a snow shovel, toss it in the car.

Rain- Be prepared (clothing-wise) for it.

See you tomorrow
