3/11 - 3/13: Family Ski / Snowshoeing Trip

Posted on Feb 6 2016 - 8:39pm

Registration, forms & fees are due. Please turn in at the Troop Meeting this Tuesday, Feb 9th.

Excellent group rates for skiing, rentals (ski, snowboard and helmet) and lessons (www.shawneepeak.com).
This year, we are skiing at Shawnee Peak on their "Scout Weekend". Reduced price for tickets ($25) and lessons ($13) than last year. Interested scouts can work on the Snow Sports merit badge.

For non-skiers, there will be a trek on snowshoes.

Lodging is at Camp Hinds, a Boy Scout Camp in Raymond ME. The heated cabin/lodge sleeps 45 individuals in bunks. Lodge has large fireplace dining room, full kitchen, restrooms and showers. Two breakfasts and a full dinner will be served.

Skiing at Shawnee Peak is great for first time skiers and boarders as well as the black-diamond-loving crowd. Very family oriented and very safe. Our weekend includes Saturday day and night skiing. Optionally, participants can ski on Sunday as well, but must arrange all transportation including their return to MA on their own.

See attached forms. Each person needs a release form. A rental form is needed per person.

Transportation to/from Camp Hinds and between Camp Hinds and Shawnee Peak will be coordinated by the troop, and drivers will be needed.

Scouts, parents and scout’s siblings are all invited to join us.

4/29 - 5/1: West Point Invitational Camporee

Posted on Feb 4 2016 - 11:14am

The troop will backpack 3.5 miles over Bull Hill to our campsite (and back on Sunday) and then participate in a weekend of compentition, events, and challenges.  Space is extremely limited and Scouts must be able to carry all personal gear along with their portion of the troop gear (supplies, food, etc.).  Given that we are 4 hours from Middleton, Scouts need to be supremely confident in their ability to complete both parts of the hike.
