Ethical Navigators Weekly Update – June 15


  • Our next camping outing is at the end of June – please sign up!
  • Update: We had our June General Meeting this morning.

June 27-29: Camping
We will camp again in June, this time at Little Grassy Lake Campground & Marina in Southern Illinois. Jim Jordan has made reservations for us, and he has some really fun plans. The director of the campsite is a friend of Jim’s, and they are planning special evening events, owl watching, bouldering, a Group Initiative Course, fishing, etc. for us. We will also have some time on the water, so be prepared to swim and/or canoe – bring your boat, kayak, or canoe, if you have one!

Please see the attached flyer for information about costs, activities, and signing up. Please let us know if you plan to attend by using this Evite. Please use this to indicate if you are not going, also, so that we know how good our count is.

We are looking forward to having a patrol group of Junior Navigators show how skilled and mature they are in being able to plan their meals.

July 18-20: Camping Float Trip
We have reservations to camp in July at Meramec State Park, at the very same sites as our first camping outing in 2012. We plan to have Sunday focused on a float trip on the Meramec River. Tom Draney and Andy Ford will plan this outing.

General Meetings

June 15
In our General Meeting this morning, we prepared for our camping outing at the end of the month.

The Junior Navigators made their plans for running the weekend, so that they will be able to take care of the food and other logistics with minimal adult supervision.

The Stargazers built plaques commemorating the Navigators Cardinal Points (aka the Navigator Traits). We will bring these plaques to our outings to remember them.

A few photos are available on Facebook and Google+.


July Council Meeting

We had planned to have the next Council Meeting on July 13, but that’s actually when our General Meeting is. We will plan an alternate time soon.
