Summer Camp Information - Three Important Tasks for this week!

Posted on Jun 12 2024 - 3:50pm
  • Summer camp is just under 2 months away and there are three tasks that everyone attending camp should do right now.
    #1:  If you have not already done so, turn in your medical forms.  The deadline is this Thursday, June 6th.  If you have questions or know that you are going to miss the deadline, please reach out to Barbara Evangelista as soon as possible.

    #2:  Everyone attending summer camp needs to read the Troop 437 Summer Camp Guide.  This short document contains everything you need to know about packing, equipment, arrival, and expectations about camp attendance.
    #3:  All Scouts need to select what merit badges and/or activities they want to participate in during the three activity periods.  See the details in the Summer Camp Activity Choices document.

    If you have any questions about summer camp or want to discuss your choices for activities at summer camp please reach out to a scoutmaster.

    P.S. If you are not signed up for summer camp but would like to please let me know - there is still time!

Trip Information–10 ½ th Anniversary Vermont Mt Mansfield Hike - Signup now!

Posted on Jun 5 2024 - 6:02pm

Our June trip will be a two-night camping trip to Vermont.  We will stay at Underhill State Park and climb Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield (elevation 4,395 ft).  The ridge is above the tree line with some of  New England's largest existing arctic tundra.  We will experience breathtaking views from the top, spanning three states and into Canada.  


The hike to the summit from Underhill State Park will be 5.1 miles round trip and 2,500 ft elevation gain.  We will plan on hiking the Sunset Ridge Trail up and back down.  It is possible, if we have interested scouts and enough leaders, that a part of the group could take a longer route down.  This would include traversing the ridge and coming down an alternate trail.  We will make that decision on the day of the hike based on conditions.
