25 Scouts and Adults tested their cold weather camping skills(with a few enjoying the warmth of the cabin) as they enjoyed the annual hike to Fat man's Squeeze and the Turkey cooked in a trashcan. Great weather, a nice dinner and a lively campfire program.

2021 AT Hike/Campout - Southern Berkshires

Posted by bvincelette on Nov 15 2021 - 12:49pm

Troop 156 had an awesome adventure, covering 8 miles and 1700 feet of elevation climb as they worked their way from Sheffield, Mass near the Housatonic river to RT 23 in Great Barrington, Mass.

Scouts enjoyed big views, a few stream crossings and arrived at the Tom Leonard shelter just before a thunderstorm that finished with some sleet. James led a campfire program joined by some other young travelers before settling in for the night. The hike out was a casual downhill jaunt with scouts and parents appreciating the return to civilization.


Devil's Hopyard Campout

Posted by bvincelette on Oct 27 2021 - 3:57pm

16 Scouts and Webelos enjoyed a fun weekend at Devil's Hopyard. Potato chucking, a fun hike including scenic overlooks, the Devil's oven and a waterfall where some of our scouts decided to brave the cool waters below the falls. Our evening finished with some dutch oven cooking for dessert and an exciting campfire program.

Desserts (Pineapple upside-down cake, Monkey bread, Peach cobbler and a big cookie.) Congratulations to Graham who won the silver spatula award.

Troop 156 enjoyed awesome weather and big views as they summited Mt. Monadnock. 1800 feet of elevation gain with a nice reward at the top.

And, who knew that frogs and tadpoles lived up on the summit. How did they get there?

Derek DiTomasso - Eagle Scout on top of Mt. Marcy

Posted by bvincelette on Aug 18 2021 - 4:07pm

Achieving Scouting's highest rank of Eagle is no small task, but climbing to the top of New York's highest peak for your ceremony is a challenge in itself.

Congratulations to Derek for excellence in scouting and in hiking. Under Derek's leadership a bridge was built along the Shenipsit trail allowing hikers safe passage over a brook.
