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 24-26: Camping/Rock Climbing
We will 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. We have a reservation at a group site. Options for the weekend include horseback riding and a guided hike to learn about local plants – please let us know if you are interested.
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.
Our May General Meeting was scheduled to be co-ordinated with the Ethical Society SEEK program, but the morning schedule changed. We skipped the meeting.
