Second-year Crews are invited to build and bring Trail Markers to Spring Outing. Each Crew's Trail Marker will be displayed in front of the Crew's cabin. During Spring Outing, the Y Guides Staff will walk around second-year cabins and judge on the best Trail Marker. Crews are encouraged to put their personal touch on their Trail 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 Crew as a whole, as well as the individual dad/child pairs.
Use your creativity. The sky is the limit!
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
