Second-Year Trail Marker

Second-year tribes are invited to build and bring Trail Markers to Spring Outing. Each tribe's Trail Marker will be displayed in front of the tribe's cabin. During Spring Outing, Y Guides Directors will walk around second-year cabins and judge on the best Trail Marker. Tribes are encouraged to put their personal touch on their Trial Markers. 

Each dad/child pair will work together to create an individual piece that represents their relationship; a special memory or your Y Guides names. 

Trail Markers are used to represent where we are, and each piece of the Y Guides Trail Marker represents the tribe as a whole, as well as the individual dad/child pairs. 

Use your creativity. The sky is the limit! 

MATERIALS: 

Trail Markers should be weatherproof, as they will be sitting outside cabins. Below are a few materials that can be easily found and used to build Trail Markers:

  • Coffee Cans 
  • Recycled plastic bottles 
  • Water Juggs 
  • Blocks of wood 
  • Empty laundry detergent bottles 
  • Outdoor Christmas lights 
  • Plastic Plates
