Our November trip is a backpacking trip to Mt Greylock near Williamstown, MA. We will be hiking to the summit - https://www.mass.gov/locations/mount-greylock-state-reservation - and staying at a group campsite in the Mt Greylock state reservation.

This is an introductory backpacking hike for new and old. We will be hiking to the summit and then camp site on Saturday with a shorter return hike back on Sunday. This is a backpacking trip with all gear carried in backpacks. We will be staying in our tents at a group campsite in Mt Greylock state reservation. We will have activities at the camp site depending on weather - patrol challenges, and possible additional day hike.

The troop meetings leading up to this trip will focus on preparing for this trip. There will be a backpack inspection at the November 2nd troop meeting. All scouts attending the trip need to bring their packed backpack to the meeting for inspection.

Merit Badge Monday next Monday - Time to sign-up

Posted on Oct 11 2017 - 10:15pm

This coming Monday, 10/16, is the next Merit Badge Monday.  Please sign-up to take advantage of this opportunity to complete some of your pesky partials or to start a new badge.

This week Mr. Porter will be starting the Programming merit badge.  Space is limited so sign-up early!

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! (and of course I know some will sign-up late)...
