Encounter something new this summer


The Naturalist Scouts are taking teens on a summer adventure with the annual Teen Outdoor Encounter, July 14-18. Open to girls and guys, ages 12-16, the encounter features day trips (no overnights) exploring the outdoors throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Hiking, biking, sailing and camping are just a few of the adventures teens will enjoy at sites like Farnsworth Metropark, Oak Openings Metropark, North Cape Yacht Club, Big Sandy Camping Area and Grand Rapids, OH. The 5-day Encounter is $98, with two scholarships available to pay half the cost. More information and a registry form can be found at www.naturalistscouts.org.
