In addition to our normal camping trips, we have some unusually exciting trips planned:

  • Our historic trip this year will be a 3-day hike from June 25 – 28 through the Presidential Range in the White Mountains of New Hampshire that will include a trek to the top of Mt. Washington.  Mount Washington is the only peak in the Northeastern United States which exceeds 6,000 feet in elevation.  We will be staying in the Appalachian Mountain Club huts, which means we will be able to pack light.  Full information for the trip is in this flyer
  • We have won a slot for a Philmont Trek from July 15-27, 2011!  Philmont Ranch is the Boy Scout’s premier national high adventure base, a large, rugged, mountainous ranch located near the town of Cimarron, New Mexico covering approximately 137,500 acres of wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico. This is a rare opportunity for scouts to participate in a 12 day trek.  To participate, Scouts must be at least 14 by September 1, 2011, and cannot have turned 18 until after July 27, 2011.  We will be discussing the trek at upcoming Troop Meetings.  The official BSA site for Philmont is and there is a good Wikipedia page at

Happy New Year!
