Voyages 2015 - A Journey Through the Ages
Every five years, we gather as a council to celebrate this great program of Scouting. This year's event is Voyages 2015 and focuses on many great explorers and their expeditions. We will gather at Stanley Park in Westfield the weekend of May 29-31 or for the day May 30 if you can't make the weekend.
In addition to learning about adventurers over the years, you will also have an opportunity to meet Mike Matty, a local businessman who has scaled the highest peak on each of the seven continents. You will find him in "The Himalayas" area of the park.
The Leader's Guides with details of the weekend are now available on the Voyages 2015 page. If you have issues with the Internet in your area that makes downloading the guide difficult, please alert Steve Roberts at the council service center and he will see that you get a paper copy.
Pre-order forms for merchandise related to the event are available here. You can also obtain a copy from the council service centers.
Grab your passports and plan to join us for this exciting weekend of Scouting!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at either of the email addresses below or Steve Roberts at the service center.
