Scout Adventure Day IV
VT Boy Scout, Explorer and Venturing Leaders:
Adventure Day IV is coming!
Below are links to the final version of the event flyer and Leaders’ Guide for the April 21-23 Adventure Day IV, the “Chicago Portage Adventure”. Registration for the event should open on Monday, March 27th. This is our most ambitious Adventure Day yet, but it is for Boy Scouts, Explorers and Venturers only. Insuring the safety of our scouts on the canoeing portion of the event is a major concern. Please review the Leader’s Guide and Flyer carefully, and address any questions regarding the event to the Co-chairs, Bill Derrah and Rich Welge. One note should be added to the information in the leaders’ guide: We will have additional leaders along the canoeing route to monitor and guide our scouts. Please note also that there will be a leader’s meeting with Q&A at the April 12th Voyageur Trace District Leaders’ Roundtable, 7pm at Plymouth Place, 315 N. La Grange Rd., La Grange Park. All leaders are encouraged to attend. Let’s make this our best Adventure Day ever!
