Close
8:00 am

The Lanciano’s have once again graciously invited the troop to their mountaintop alpine adventure base in Alexandria NH. It will be held on February 8 and 9th. The Venture scouts (high school) are eligible to depart with an advance party on Friday. Ventures will meet and depart at the St. Mary’s Parish Center on Friday February 7th at 6pm.

All other scouts will meet and depart from the Parish Center on Saturday February 8 at 8 am. Scouts will return from the event for pickup at the Parish Center at approximately between 2 and 3 pm on Sunday. (Scouts will call home on their ride home to nail down arrival time). All scouts should eat a meal before they depart, as there will be no meal stop on the ride up north.

Scouts....snow is in the forecast.....Don’t forget your sled on this trip. Intense sledding is the main feature. For safety, scouts are encouraged to bring a ski helmet or sport helmet if they have one. Interested scouts can also try their hand at cross country skiing and snowshoeing. There is no fee for this camping trip.

All scouts should bring a bag lunch on Saturday. All scouts will cook outdoor patrol style meals for Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. We’ll stop for a fast food lunch on the ride home. Meal planning was done by scouts at the January 30th troop meeting. Meals will be cooked by patrols outdoors over their wood fire.

Scouts will be sleeping in the wood stove heated luxury of the Lanciano cabin ground level (aka basement). While no tents are required, scouts should bring their full complement of winter camping gear (see website checklist), including sleeping pad, sleeping bag and water bottles. Ok to bring slippers too.

The permission slip is due by Tuesday, February 4.
