Warren Dunes Camping Trip: Friday, September 8th-Sunday, September 10th. 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 families are welcome to attend this outing.

We will need volunteers to help load/unload supplies at Riverside Presbyterian Church Thursday evening, September 7th and Sunday, September 10th upon return. Please email George Condes gcondes@gmail.com 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.
