Overnight Options:

Several families head back to HT Sat night after skiing.  Another option is spending the night at Christ Episcopal Church in Stroudsburg.  Mr Mallgrave, Mr. Stine and usually a couple other adults spend the night.  Everyone leaves the slopes around 8:30PM, get to the church around 9, spread our sleeping bags out in the Fellowship Hall and get some pizza or have snacks.  We play backgammon, cards or just hang out.  In the morning, we will cook a hot breakfast, attend their 8AM church service, and come back to Haddon Twp around 12:30.



The cost is $90, which includes rentals (skis or snow board), ski lift tickets, helmets (mandatory to wear) and an optional 1 1/2 hr lesson.  This money will be due on Tuesday, January 31st or before and can be brought to a scout meeting or at Mr Stine’s house (217 Fern Ave) so that we can get Express Rental info inputted and to Shawnee in time. Mr Stine’s phone number is 856-816-8021. Please let him know before you drop off the check.


You can save some money by sending all skiers with a soft-sided cooler, lunch, snack, drinks, etc.
