This year we have planned a bunch of new and exciting trips. We are planning to visit Philadelphia for our advancement hike, The Green bar has also planned more hikes consisting of harder ones for older or more adventuring boys and easier ones for younger scouts. The hikes would probably be up at Harriman State Park. We have also planned about 1 trip per month. Further details will be posted as the year progresses.
Bluenose February, 19-21 2005
Many boys are interested in going to bluenose. Bluenose is a campout usually in the snow at Onteora. You must be 13 and first class to go but its also up to the discretion of your scoutmaster. If you are interested in attending Bluenose you must go to a series of training courses provided by TRC. This is serious camping but should be fun.
At the leaders' planning session in Onteora we seriously discussed going to Northern Tier this coming summer. The other high adventure camps, Philmont in New Mexico and Sea Base in the Keys, are booked a year to two years in advance. Therefore because of age and time restrictions we would like to do Sea Base in 2006 and Philmont in 2007.
