ISLE ROYALE PARENT'S GUIDE & PERMISSION SLIP

Good evening High Adventurers,

This summer we are heading to Isle Royale National Park for a breath-taking view and undisturbed wilderness rarely found anywhere else.  The initial payment will be due at the 15 Jan troop meeting. I've attached a parent's guide to better describe the trek and all that leads up to it.  Please read through it and take this opportunity to be a part of this incredible high adventure trek.

2019 High Aventure - Isle Royale National Park

The 2019 Summer High Adventure trip will take Troop 125 to Isle Royale National Park, in Lake Superior.  We will be going from 18-25 Jul.  We have details already posted as I briefed a few months back.  We plan to hike around 50 miles on the island, swin the lake superior and maybe, just maybe see one of the new wolves that have just been introduced to the island.  The island has been a national park since 1940 and the natural beauty is breathe taking.  This is a great opportunity to see the island.  This is the first trip the troop has made to the island in 12 years so don't miss out.
