Skywalker Ropes Challenge Course December 16th, 2006 November 30, 2006
This outing is a ropes challenge course designed to teach teambuilding. We will have about one hour of training on the use of the equipment, break for pizza, then spend the rest of the evening climbing the ropes course. Here is the description from the YMCA.

The Skywalker Party is an event recommended for ages 12 years old and up. This party includes Skywalker ground school lead by our staff which teaches the participants how to use their equipment on the high ropes course, use of the high ropes course, and a party room with a fridge and microwave. This party is great for teambuilding, overcoming fears, or just having fun. Each participant is required to have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian to participate.

The YMCA requires everyone to fill out a waiver. Click here for the blank form.

Starved Rock State Park Hike November 10, 11 & 12, 2006 October 26, 2006
We will be camping at the Starved Rock State Park Youth Group Campground area. Exploring the majestic bluffs and canyons is the park's primary attraction, and there are 13 miles of well-marked trails to help you enjoy them. Starved Rock State Park derives its name from a Native American legend of injustice and retribution. In the 1760s, Pontiac, chief of the Ottawa tribe upriver from here, was slain by an Illiniwek while attending a tribal council in southern Illinois. According to the legend, during one of the battles that subsequently occurred to avenge his killing, a band of Illiniwek, under attack by a band of Potawatomi (allies of the Ottawa), sought refuge atop a 125-foot sandstone butte. The Ottawa and Potawatomi surrounded the bluff and held their ground until the hapless Illiniwek died of starvation- giving rise to the name “Starved Rock.”
