April 8-10 New Scout/Tenderfoot weekend
We are planning to do a day hike at Mount Monadnock and camp at Camp Wanocksett, Dublin, NH. While this is a challenging mountain, it is also one of (if not #1) the most hiked mountains in the country. We hiked this 4 years ago and everyone was able to make it up to at least the bare treeline area. Definitely consider going on this trip as we will also be doing quite a bit of advancement on Saturday afternoon for the new Scouts and any Scouts who still need to get up to 1st Class rank The fee will be $20 per scout. Please sign up as soon as possible for planning purposes.
May 14-15 – Canoeing on the Charles River and camping overnight at Rocky Narrows in Sherborn. This is another Trustees property, which has a boat landing and a campsite that we can reserve. We would probably launch in Millis and spend the day canoeing up to the site. We would be taking all of our gear in the boats. This would be a true “roughing it” Scouting Experience! Cost $15 per scout
June 17-19: Deep Sea Fishing (details TBD)
July 17-23: Summer Camp at Camp Squanto Plymouth
Reminder that March 31st is the deadline for the Troop to get early bird discount pricing on Summer Camp (Save $50). After March 31st we can still add to the roster, but at the higher price of $520 vs $470. We are asking for $100 Deposit now to hold your spot and the balance in April or May.
Summer Camp should be operating at Pre-Covid levels. There will be some covid mitigation in place, but no masks required, people can come and go as needed, 2 scouts per tent, snack bar/trading post will be fully open, etc..It should be a really fun time and we are hoping to be in the Agawam Campsite which is right down by the pond! The list of Merit Badges just came out yesterday. Mr. O’Toole will be sending out additional correspondence on Merit Badge selection and timing in a separate email.
