Mt. Monadnock - 2021

Posted by bvincelette on Oct 5 2021 - 11:45am

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.


Mt. Marcy Trip

Posted by bvincelette on Aug 18 2021 - 3:53pm

11 Scouts and Adults embarked on an epic High adventure trip in the Adirondacks. The scouts were prepared for some tough climbing and wet weather

as they summitted Mt. Marcy. (The highest point in New York at 5344 feet.) Scouts used their skills to pack light, set camp, keep their food away from bears, stay dry(mostly), 

and endure some of the toughest hiking in their scouting careers. All in all a trip to remember with a well deserved ice cream at the end. 25 miles, 5,000 feet of elevation gain and plenty of lifetime memories



Yawgoog 2021

Posted by bvincelette on Jul 15 2021 - 11:45am

21 Scouts arrived at Yawgoog after a 2 year absence and got back into the swing of things. Merit badges, Dinning hall meals together, Campfire programs, the Bakeoff, Horseshoes, Volleyball, lots of swimming and boating and the weather.

Although our week was cut short due to tropical depression Elsa, everyone enjoyed their time back at camp with 6 scouts experiencing Yawgoog for the first time. We had fun with our Medieval theme costumes with a bit of a "Holy Grail" movie madness thrown in for fun.
