Urban Adventure

Are you ready to test the skills we’ve learned throughout the year to the big city (Chicago)? There will be no sleeping in tents or sitting around the fire on this outing. Instead we will be hiking, map reading and using navigational skills. Boys will be grouped with 6 to 8 others along with a dad or two for the day in the city. They will participate in a Scavenger Hunt throughout the city, using public transportation (sorry, no cash cabs). Each group will have to solve a puzzle that leads to a specific destination. After identifying the destination, they will have to navigate the city’s public transportation system to get to the destination. Once at the destination, they are required to take a group picture. During the day, each group may see Lincoln Park, The Loop, Chinatown, Bridgeport, or Navy Pier. The troop will meet back at the train station to take the 4:40 train back to Glen Ellyn. During their travels, each group can have lunch at a place they choose. Remember to dress with the weather in mind, hiking boots, hats & gloves, layers as needed. We will be outside all day.
