Ethical Navigators Weekly Update – May 1, 2016


  • Update: Stormy weather forced us to have a lock-in at the Ethical Society instead of camping outside, but we had fun anyway.
  • Early details set for May and June outings.
  • We have add-ons for free summer camps.
  • New: Our next Council Meeting will be May 8 at 9:30.

April 29-May 1: Lock-In
Our plan for the weekend was to camp at Pere Marquette State Park. Unfortunately, a series of major storms swept through the area over the weekend, so we switch instead to “camping” at the Ethical Society – a Lock-In!

Five families spent Friday night and Saturday at the Ethical Society. We made crafts, ate together, enjoyed a fire pit, and had a good time with the Ethical Society Nursery School Carnival.

Some photos are available on Facebook.

Free Recreation Camps: All Summer Add-on
The City of St. Louis offers free Playtime Recreation summer camps for children ages 5-18. The earlier camps start on June 6, and the latest ends on August 11. Some of the camps are age-restricted, and they vary in length and time of day.

Topics include Geocaching, Art, Sports, Music, Engineering, Cooking, Cheerleading, Fishing, etc.

More information and registration is available on the city’s website.

Reminder: An add-on is an event that some families in Navigators might attend, but not an event for which we are having a formal presence. If you know of other events that might be fun for Navigators, please let us know, and we will advertise them and add them to our calendar.

June: Camping/Rock Climbing
We will visit Cahokia Mounds to participate in Kids Day. We will have more details soon. This is a rare Sunday outing.

June 24-26: Camping/Rock Climbing
We have tentative plans to camp in Southern Illinois at Giant City State Park the weekend of June 24. We may try to open this up to other Navigators Chapters.

July: Camping/Float Trip
Our outing for July will be be another float-trip camping weekend, likely at Meramec State Park, where we went in July 2014 and 2015. A specific weekend has not been chosen.
