This trip was one of Solar’s popular trips a few years ago and now it’s back. This event is great for a family outing. Bring your kids, friends, and neighbors. If you don’t have any kids then bring your nieces and nephews. Or, just bring yourself like me. I’m a big kid!!

Directions from Detroit:
It’s about a 2 hour drive from Detroit.
Cross into Canada by way of the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron ($3.00 charge). Take highway 402 East. Exit at exit 44. This is 79 (Nauvoo Rd), go left (North). 79 will then make a sharp turn to the right (East). 79 will then turn left onto Arkona Rd heading into the city of Arkona. Pass through Arkona and turn right onto Rock Glen Rd and goto the Rock Glen Conservation Area.
CROSSING THE INTERNATIONAL BORDER. You will need either a U.S. Passport; Passport Card; Enhanced Driver’s License; or other to cross the border. (see link below)
“U.S. and Canadian citizen children under the age of 16 (or under 19, if traveling with a school, religious group, or other youth group) need only present a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. The birth certificate can be original, photocopy, or certified copy.”
If you are bringing a child that is not yours and their guardian is not with you I would suggest that you get a permission slip from the guardian. After all you will be taking that child across the International Boarder into Canada. Just a thought.
The SOLAR Club is a Not for Profit outdoors club. The Steering Committee (members elected to run the club), most of the instructors, and the activity leaders are all volunteers. By giving their time and knowledge so that others can come together and enjoy the outdoors.
We will discuss meeting at the park and any carpooling options via meet up - Jim.
