For our May Troop outing the Scouts have chosen Cedar Point (CP) as our destination.
We will gathering at the Church on Friday, May 17 at 6:00 PM to pack up and get underway.
Scouts should have dinner before arriving at the Church.
We travel to and from outings in full class “A” uniforms (shirt, belt, pants and socks).
Electronics and cell phones should be left at home.
We cook and eat as a Troop, so all food and snacks will be purchased and brought by the Scouts designated to do so. No food packed in personal gear. No food in tents.
We will be traveling to East Harbor State Park where we will be staying in the group camping area. The Scouts will have a snack before turning in for the evening.
We will be sleeping in tents.
On Saturday morning Scouts will cook breakfast, clean up, and then we will travel the short distance to CP where will will stay until the early afternoon. Scout and adults will purchase lunch in the park, so please plan to bring money for that purpose.
Scouts will be in the park in small groups and will be required to stay together. They will be required to check in with adult leadership during the day at fixed intervals.
After CP, we will return to the State Park. Scouts will prepare dinner and clean up and we will spend the night in tents.
On Sunday morning after breakfast and cleanup, we will depart the State Park, arriving back at the Church at about noon.
The cost for the outing will be $75 and I must have money for the outing by the end of the Scout meeting on Monday, May 13. If we are able to secure additional discounts, we will refund the savings to participants. We will not know the amount of discounts until after the tickets to CP are purchased (after Monday evening).
The cost covers camping, food for the outing, and park admissions. It does not cover the cost of lunch or other food in CP on Saturday.
The weather is variable this time of year. It’s important to pay attention to weather forecasts and dress to be outside for most of the day on Saturday.
Sunscreen is important.
