Philmont here we come. Troop 5 has officially started its preparation for the Philmont Ranch 2020 epic adventure. The first hike of the season was a success. Scouts from Troop 5 enjoyed a gorgeous day and hiked approximately 7 miles of Harriman State Park trails. Everyone had a great time. Congratulations to those who participated. Great job!

Troop 5 had a very busy summer. In July, led by Crew Chief Giovanni La Vecchia, 11 Scouts and adult leaders adventured to the Chilkoot High Adventure base in Haines, Alaska. An amazing trip where the troop backpacked to beatiful British Columbia, whitewater rafted in the wild waters of the Yukon river, sea kayaked in the fjords around Haines and hiked in and around Juneau for a few days. Way to go Troop 5 and congratulations to those who participated. It’s time to look forward to our next high adventure which will be in 2020. Troop 5, get ready!

Philmont practice hike #2 was an exciting and very challenging adventure, and all scouts of Troop 5 who participated did a great job.

Troop 5 hiked the Colonial Greenway trail, which winds through roads, woods and wetlands of Westchester. Great job to all who participated. It was a great experience.
