Scouts go outdoors today

MARQUETTE –Do you have a child interested in Scouts? Join in for a day of outdoor activities at Rippling River Resort in Marquette from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.

Learn about Scouts BSA (for boys and girls 11-17 years old) and the adventurous things they do.

In Scouting, young men and women start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves, according to a release from Scouts, adding that the fun, hands-on learning and adventure puts them in the middle of the action and prepares them for today — and for life.

Families can take part in fire building, hiking, a nature hunt, Dutch oven cooking, and walk across a monkey bridge.

There’s plenty of room to maintain social distancing but bring a mask for the small group activities.

This is a free event. The group will be “Scouting for Food” and accepting donations of canned food throughout the day as well.

For those with a younger child in grades K-5, organizers will be happy to answer questions and sign them up for a Cub Scout Pack with their school.

For more event information contact Fred at 906-250-1813 or fred.r.anderson@gmail.com.

For any questions about Scouting in the Upper Peninsula or any Scouting event, contact Patrick O’Brien, 920-419-8401 or patrick.obrien@scouting.org or find the nearest Pack or Troop near you at www.beascout.org.
