Looking for an outstanding, challenging, character building, skills testing, Christ centered weekend adventure? Look no further as the 1st Annual Worthy Wayfinder arrives May 31-June 2. The Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) Area would like to extend an invitation to all Trail Life troops to compete in an exhilarating challenge weekend in Delaware. You will arrive as a troop and set up camp just as if you would at any other campout. Troops are responsible for providing their own meals for Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch, and Sunday breakfast. The camp will provide a delicious Saturday dinner BBQ. This event is a patrol challenge event and will exemplify the patrol method throughout the weekend. All the patrols from various troops will be working simultaneously on their own, but as a team, accumulating points as they face different challenges all weekend. Adult leadership will be asked to let the Trailmen lead the Trailmen as each patrol leaves their campsite to participate in the weekend events. Daily, all patrols and leaders will return to their camp for meals and sleep. During the weekend, adult leaders can choose a skills station to occupy and help oversee. This event will cover the Trail Skills Badge as well as other portions of core badges through learning stations and a competitive orienteering course. The focus of this weekend is more than just putting your skills to the test, it will focus on character building through pace and navigational growth in Christ. Psalm 37:23 -The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Various pastors/teachers from MD and DE will administer the Word of God to us each night and on Sunday morning. Registration starts today and ends May 18th. The cost is $25 per person.

Named for its centerpiece, the 66-acre Killens Pond, this state park features a waterpark, various watercraft rentals and the popular Pondside Loop Trail. The Lenape people once lived here, and the pond was created when the Murderkill River was dammed to power grist and sawmills. It is now home to a variety of fish, including bass, crappie and sunfish. The new state-of-the art elevated boardwalk allows pedestrians and bikers a safe passage along Killens Pond Road while benches and bump outs allow for wildlife watching and fishing. Kayakers and boaters can launch from the boat launch at the far end of the walkway. The waterpark features four tall slides, a main pool and baby pool, and a tot lot. The campground provides a reprieve in the woods and Delaware’s State tree, the American Holly, is plentiful. Visitors to the park’s nature center can see live animal exhibits that feature native reptiles and amphibians. The Pileated Woodpecker, Prothonotary Warbler and Barred Owl can often be heard in the woods at the park.
