Welcome new Scouts
Troop 1 would like to welcome our new scouts from Packs 28 and 25. We would like to welcome Tim, Connor, Dylan, AJ, Aaron, Adrian, Charlie, Colin, Will, Jack, and Jackson. We look forward to seeing them do great things. Several of our new scouts already attended our March camping trip at Nobscot. They set and slept in their own tent in spite of the cold temperatures and the snow. Of course "Spring" in Massachusetts is also known as "Still Winter".....
Join us In an opportunity to scale what the Penobscot Indians referred to as the “Greatest Mountain” - Katahdin. Located in Baxter State Park in North Central Maine, Katahdin is the tallest peak in that state, and the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. It was on a Troop 1 expedition to Katahdin in 2009 that the idea to thru-hike the AT took hold for your Scoutmaster. We will camp at Katahdin Springs Campground in Baxter State Park. We’ll travel there on Saturday May, 23rd. Sunday will be the day to summit Katahdin, and we will travel back home on Monday the 25th ( except for Mr Brenckle and Ian Brenckle, who will then head south on the AT into Maine’s 100-mile Wilderness on the beginning of their 2,000 mile journey to Springer Mountain in Georgia). Mt Katahdin is 5,270 feet. For those that don’t want to venture to the summit, there is the opportunity to hike around Baxter State Park, or just to camp and enjoy Katahdin Springs. Space is limited, so sign up early.
As summer begins, join the troop for a camping adventure on Cape Cod. Camp Greenough, in Yarmouthport, offers scouts a variety of activities. Try your luck fishing in Greenough Pond, hike the extensive campground area, or tackle the COPE course. We will have a 6 hour COPE (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) event on Saturday – participants climb, swing, balance, jump, rappel and think through solutions to a variety of challenges. COPE is designed for scouts to achieve both individual and team success. Our campsite is located right next to a ball field (available to our troop,) and we will have Adirondack shelters in case of inclement weather. Cost is $10 each for camping and an additional $20 if you are interested in the COPE course.
The troop will depart Friday evening, June 19, at 5pm. The COPE event will take place Saturday. Return home Sunday June 21.
