Shenipsit Trail - Soapstone Mountain

Posted by bvincelette on Jan 17 2022 - 9:17am

7 brave scouts and 3 adults hiked 5 miles of the Shenipsit trail. With a zero degree start scouts learned that with proper planning and clothing they can stay warm and actually sweat. The hike meandered through oak and hemlock forests ending with some spectacular views atop Soapstone mountain looking to the north into Massachusetts. Finally, with recent Eagle scout Spencer Moy taking the lead on a good turn, the scouts carried out some trash to be recycled. (Spencer actually carried a discarded 1992 computer monitor 3 miles. :)

Troop 156 came out in full force as they collected a record 3875 lbs of food for Hands on Hartford. 

This translated into 3300 meals for those in need. Nice work everyone! What a great team effort.

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.
