Good Luck to Clay D., Anthony Q., and Ryan W. who are departing Sunday with Troop 58 on a fifty-mile bike trip down Syracuse’s Erie Canal Trailway. Scouts interested in a local bike adventure can check out PEEC’s McDade Trail Bike Ride.
Ryan W. and Chris K. will be meeting in July (before camp) to discuss the 2018-19 Scout Year. Scouts with ideas for outings, camping trips, and meeting topics should contact Ryan W.
Congrats to all the Scouts who came to our pre-camp swim check – all passed the Swimmer test!
Scouts recently earning First Class can work on their Cyber Chip this summer – a requirement for earning Star Scout. Check out Cyber Chip Requirements.
Hiking Merit Badge: Mr. Ruiz and Mr. Simmons will be leading a hike on June 30th on the grounds of the Old Beech Mountain Camp. Originally the summer camp run by Hudson Valley Council, it is now part of the Catskill park and is State property. It resides in DeBruce, NY off Exit 96 off Rte 17, Livingston Manor. It will be a 10 mile hike.
We are looking at July 28th to do an Historic Hike at Bear Mountain, The 1776 Hike. Scouts could complete the hike and receive the historic trails medal.
Mr. Ruiz and Mr. Simmons are looking to plan another Hike in August but need your input with scheduling. August 5-12 is unavailable; please let them know when your available this summer. They could arrange a hike during the week if the group would like. They are also willing to arrange additional five and/or ten milers if needed. They are looking at September for the 15 miler and October for the 20 right now.
