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.

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
This Friday’s (2/18) meeting has been cancelled. Many of us have other obligations that has made this an unfortunate necessity.
Please stay tuned for more information about the upcoming Camp-In. Scheduled for February 24th and 25th, this Camp-In promises to provide fun, food, games, and excitement for all who are involved.
Trailmen- Guess what. It is camping time again. It is one week short of a year since we had our first camp out. Cool. Please review the lists below. We have added somethings.
Date/Time: Friday, 7/29 (5:30 pm) until Saturday, 7/30 (2 pm)
Location: Crossroads Christian Camp
Items to bring if you have:
Life Jackets: If you have life jackets for you and your son(s), please bring them.
Tents: If you are bringing a tent, please let us know. Chris, if you could bring your tent, we would like to use it for the boys to practice setting up.
- sleeping bag or blankets
- sleeping pad
- something to sleep in (top and bottoms, please)
- swim suit
- old sneakers or water shoes for swimming
- complete change of clothes
- any other clothing the weather may dictate.
Food/Eating – The utensils should be something non-breakable. Marking them in some way will stop any confusion. No paper, please
- Cup or mug
- Spoon or spork
- water bottle
- You don’t have to worry about food – we’ve got you covered
- (If you or your boy has any food allergies, it’d probably be a good idea to mention them to Simon and/or Steve)

- suntan lotion
- pack, duffel bag, or other type of bag to carry your the stuff
Camping Etiquette Reminders:
- No electronics, please.
