December Outing - Day Hike at Minute Man National Historic Park - Signup this Week!

Posted on Dec 7 2016 - 11:24pm

Troop 437 will be walking along the Battle Road followed taken by the British on their attack of Revolutionary fighters on April 17, 1775, and on along which they retreated later that same day. Along the path, the Scouts will see a number of historic buildings. We hope to have a special guest and local historical expert join us on the trip to serve as our tour guide.


We will meet on the Lexington Green at 9AM and walk the 7.5 miles to the Old North Bridge in Concord.  The trail is clear, well marked and relatively easy.  Parents, if ever you’ve wanted to join you scout on one of our outings without having to commit to spending the night sleeping in a tent, this is an excellent chance to do so.

Scouts: This trip satisfies requirement 2A and possibly parts of 2D for the Eagle required merit badge Citizenship in the NationBUT ONLY IF YOU GET A BLUE CARD AHEAD OF TIME.  See Mr McKeen if you need a blue card for this merit badge. Also, scouts working on 2nd Class rank, if you bring a compass you can complete requirement 3B: “Using a compass and map together take a 5 mile hike.”

FOOD   Attendees should pack a bag lunch and bring water (at least 2 litres) for the trail we will stop to eat at some point along the way to eat. Additionally, the troop will provide some snacks for the trail.                        

Seasonally Appropriate Clothing Required:  BE PREPARED! Although we will be walking the trail used for the Battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, the weather is expected to me reminiscent of Valley Forge.

This week's troop meeting will not be held at the Legion.  It will be at East Boston Camps/Stony Brook Conservation Land where the troop will hold a short night hike.  Please meet at the Depot Street gate/entrance at the usual 7:00pm starting time.  Please bring a flashlight and dress appropriately for outdoor activities.
