Special Announcements


  • September Camping at Monadnock State Park, Jaffrey, NH - Friday, September 26 to Sunday, September 28 - Our September camping trip will be to Monadnock State Park in Jaffrey, NH. We will hike Mt Monadnock Saturday afternoon. Please see the flyer for details. Payment is due by September 18.

  • WANTED: Adults who like backpacking (or would like to try it.) Meeting: Thursday, 9/18, during the Troop Meeting.
    • Connor and Jack are restarting the older boy backpacking program. This program provides alternative weekend outings for the high school boys and a chance to earn Backpacking Merit Badge. In past years, the group has hiked the Pemigawasset wilderness and climbed Mt. Washington and hike portions of the Wilderness 100 in Maine, as well as many local weekend trips.
    • To make it successful, they will need additional adult leaders to join them on trips. This could be current leaders or parents, male or female. Experience is not necessary. A desire to hike and join the boys is necessary. We can teach you as we teach them. You would not need to go on all the trips. The objective is to establish a pool of leaders that can be available.
    • There will be an organizational meeting for all adults interested in the helping with program during the Troop Meeting on Thursday, Sept 18, at 8:00, immediately following the Opening Ceremony.
    • If you are interested and cannot attend, please contact Jack Phillips at: scoutmasterjack@email.com
