-Warren Dunes Camping Trip: Friday, August 6th-Sunday, August 8th.   (This year, due to COVID, we’ve moved up the Warren Dunes camping trip. Instead of being the weekend after Labor Day, the trip to Warren Dunes will be the first weekend in August.) Pack 24 Cub Scouts are returning to the Warren Dunes State Park near Sawyer, Michigan for our annual camping trip. This is a great trip for the Scouts and we spend time playing games on the nearby Lake Michigan beach and exploring the dunes. All Cub Scouts and their entire family are welcome to attend this outing.

We will need volunteers to help load supplies at Riverside Presbyterian Church Thursday evening, August 5th and Sunday, August 8th upon return. Please email Jason Johns to volunteer your services. Of course, all please pitch in with cooking, cleanup, loading/unloading at the campsite.

Here’s a summary of what we have planned…

Friday night: Check in, set up, dinner on your own, campfire.
