May Mountain-Climbing Camping Trip

The May Mountain-Climbing Campout:will be held Saturday/Sunday, May 3-4 at Mount Monadnock State Park in Jaffrey NH. The troop will camp at a secluded group campsite, and then hike to the 3150 foot summit. The weather atop Mt. Monadnock is often cold and windy, so scouts should pack warm clothes, hat and gloves for the ascent.

The troop will meet at the parish center at 8:30 AM Saturday and leave for the campsite by about 9 AM. We will return to the parish center for pickup by 3pm on Sunday.

Scouts need to bring a bag lunch for Saturday. The troop will be cooking patrol style for dinner and breakfast. Scouts should also bring some money for a fast food or diner lunch on Sunday. Each patrol will give grocery assignments to their members at the April 17th troop meeting.

If your son will be attending, please drop off the attached permission slip no later than the April 17 Troop Meeting. Please email or call Phil Bedard before April 17 if your son will be attending but won’t be at the April 17 Troop Meeting. The troop needs to know who is attending for planning purposes. There is a nominal fee of $5/scout to help with cost of the state park campsite. Please bring the payment along with your permission slip, and make checks payable to Troop 4.
