Planned Options for Navigators & Adventures

This year we will have all Navigators and Adventurers divided into patrols in which they select an area that would like to focus on.  There will be free time available to swim, zip-line into the lake, boat or fish, as the patrol decides.   The number of openings in each patrol will be limited, so signing up early will guarantee that you will get the patrol you want.  Some patrols may have per-requisites to complete before they come to camp.

  • Beekeeping (if you own protective wear…bring it)
  • Blacksmithing
  • Climb On

  • Trail Skills (bring a compass if you have one, comfortable shoes to hike in)
  • Wood Tools & Ropework (you can bring your pocket knife & ax/hatchet)

Registration is $50 per person for the entire weekend if registered before May 1 and $60 after that.  REGISTRATION CLOSES ON MAY 15.  The cost for participating on Saturday only from 10am to 4pm will be $35.  All meals and snacks from Friday night Cracker Barrel through Sunday’s breakfast are included.  Registration also includes a devotional booklet, custom Trail Life t-shirt and custom made camp patch.  Saturday only registrants will receive lunch, the custom Trail Life t-shirt and patch.  Lanyards will be available to those who don’t have one.

Woodland Trail and leaders and parents have the opportunity to stay indoors (though if they want to camp in tents…that would be okay) in camp hogans (bring your sleeping bag and pillow).  Adventurers and Navigators will be camping (bring your tent, bag, pad, etc. along with you).  Troops that are tenting will be able to camp in the same area.  Generally troop members that are in hogans will be kept together.

On Saturday night there will be a troop competition Dutch Oven cook off.  Hot coals and ice cream will be provided. Bring everything else you need to create your masterpiece.

Participant names can be changed prior to the event.  Refunds will be made if canceled prior to May 15th.  Registration is open to all registered Trailmen and leaders/parents.
