Troop 5 completed a 12 Day trek at Philmont Scout Ranch this summer!  We were Crew 711-D and completed trek 12-17.  More photos are over on the flicker site.  Congrats Scouts and Advisors!

Scouts from Troop 5 completed another amazing hike. This time it was 10 miles at the Bear Mountain State Park, and the paths walked included the Tower and 1777 trails. Some of these trails were walked by British soldiers during the revolutionary war period. Wow! On the way, the troop stopped at Fort Montgomery and enjoyed a Musket firing demonstration. It was another beautiful day, blue skies and a perfect fall weather. Scouts and Adult leaders enjoyed this great outdoor adventure.

Troop 5 had a great time hiking 10 miles of the Greenway Trail. It was a beautiful sunny day and everyone enjoyed the outdoors.

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.
