Winter/Spring 2019 Outdoor Event Schedule

Once again, the PLC has made their wishes known. Thanks to our SPL for gathering ideas and presenting to the adults at the fall Committee mtg. While the Troop Committee recommended against a 3+ hour drive each way to Indiana for canoeing, we still found plenty of fun closer to home. 

Fire – an essential element of spring camping in Chicago!

Here’s the plan for winter/spring 2019:

Sat, Jan 5 – Family Ski Trip to Lake Geneva T-79 Families and Scouts can sign-up for this event and coordinate their own logistics with fellow T-79 Scouts and families. This event is organized by the Indian Trails District.

Sat, Feb 2 – Klondike Derby  This is the official winter sled racing day we’re targeting and it’s all about having lots of snow!  Location changed to
Camp Reinberg in nearby Palatine with the Indian Trails District.

Sat, Mar 2 thru Sun, Mar 3 – Cabin Camping at Camp Bullfrog Lake We’ve reserved two large heated cabins in the heart of the vast, hilly Palos Preserves.

Sat, Mar 30 thru Sun, Mar 31 – Tent Camping at the Indiana Dunes  Weather permitting, we’ll be heading back to the dunes, possibly by train and hiking into camp!

Fri, May 3 thru Sun, May 5 – Tent Camping, Challenge Course & Zip Line at Camp Shaw.  With 110 acres of land, open fields & wooded areas for tenting, Camp Shaw-waw-nas-see offers a variety of activities. We’re setup for tenting with a pavilion nearby for the usual camping, cooking and having a great time in the outdoors. We’ll also test our skills on a challenge course, and experience the thrill of Camp Shaw’s zip line. Of course we’ll find a way to include a Cinco de Mayo theme!

Check your schedule and save the dates!  Also posted on the Troop calendar.
