Washington DC Here we come; April Vacation

Posted on Sep 20 2019 - 5:43pm

We were already planning to do a Washington DC trip in April and now that the school has cancelled thiers, we're even more committed to making this happen. The details are sparse right now...almost non-existant :) but we're reviving the Troop 3 Tradition of going to Washington DC over April Vacation 2020.  There are plenty of stories and pictures of the Troop's trips around the Scout House.  This promises to be a great trip.  I believe that the school trip was usually a 3 day (or so) whirlwind.  I think we'd lean more towards a longer trip to try and see all that we can without feeling like we're sprinting from one spot to another.  

Crane's Campout NOW OCTOBER 4-6

Posted on Sep 20 2019 - 5:36pm

Yes, it was inconvenient and disappointing to have to move this weekend's event (and the weather looks PERFECT), but better safe than sorry.  The annual Crane's Beach Campout is now Friday October 4 -Sunday October 6.  Other than the date moving out two weeks, all other plans will stay the same. We've got plenty of room if you were undecided or couldn't make it this weekend.  You can still sign up.  If you signed up and paid, but now the new date doesn't work, we will get you your payment back. 

Troop 3 Backpacks to WWII Bomber crash site - OCTOBER Backpack Trip

Posted on Sep 1 2019 - 1:28pm

October 25-27th, Troop 3 will go backpacking in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The scouts will hike to the site of a WWII B-18 bomber crash and survey the remaining wreckage. On Sunday, depending on the weather, they will have the opportunity to hike a nearby peak as well. This is a moderately strenuous trip. Scouts will need to carry a full backpack several miles and set up camp. The hike to the crash site and the separate peak on Sunday will be done using day packs, not full backpacks. Scoutland participation required or scout must be at least a 2nd year scout. All information is on the Troop web calendar.
