Octiber Campout – Taconic Mountains

The troop will travel on the weekend of October 13-14 to the Taconic Mountains in the MA/NY/CT tri-state area. This trip will feature tent camping and day hiking along the Appalachian Trail. Scouts will meet Saturday at the parish center at 6:30 for an on-time departure at 7AM. We will return to Saint Mary’s on Sunday, October 14th for a 12:00 PM pick-up.

All attendees (scouts/adults) will cook their backpacking meals individually, using only boiled water for meal preparation.

All scouts must bring their fully packed back-pack to the Scout Room on Friday, October 12th at 7:00 PM for a “shake-down” to ensure each scout is well prepared. Unlike local camping there is no opportunity for scouts to obtain important items that they may have forgotten once we are on the road.

It is very important that all scouts and leaders who plan to attend please e-mail Brian Weber NLT Wednesday, October 10th and drop off the permission slip no later than the beginning of the October 11th Troop Meeting.

Additional information and a permission slip is located on the Troop 4 homepage under “Campout Information”.
