This weekend we backpacked along a part of the Appalachian Trial. The older scouts bought backpacking meals and went on an overnight trip away from base camp. The younger scouts stayed at base camp, worked on requirements and went for a day hike.
We finally completed our patch set for hiking at Gettysburg this weekend. Over the last few years, we have been camping on the battlefield as a troop and doing hikes of various mileage, as well as learning more about Gettysburg so that we could earn pieces of a patch...

Get to know us
Our troop was founded in 1947 in Mount Holly, NJ.
We have an extensive outdoor program based on the Boy Scouts’ Outdoor Code. We typically have an outdoor activity occurring every month and attend a week-long summer camp at various scouting camps in the Northeast. Throughout the year, we have weekend outings that may include backpacking, canoeing, hiking, camping, or biking.
Our Troop firmly advocates being a “Youth Run” troop. Our scouts develop, plan, and execute the program including all meetings and outings. They are responsible for choosing the meeting topics and delivering the content. They are also responsible for selecting outing types and locations and then working through the planning and execution with adult oversight and mentoring. We follow this approach because we find it provides the best learning experience possible and helps the youth to develop leadership skills while leading their peers.
