Interested in Lenhok'sin high adventure trip?

Posted on Dec 9 2022 - 3:53pm

Troop 976 will send at least one crew to Lenkok'sin this summer. Lenhok'sin is a weeklong backpacking trek at Goshen Scout Reservation. We will plan to backpack 5-10 miles each day, then set up camp and participate in an activity (caving, blacksmithing, aquatics, ..) We get to pick which outposts we hike to and plan our own itinerary. It is sometimes described as a mini-Philmont. For more information see: https://www.gotogoshen.org/camps-programs/lenhoksin-high-adventure/ Scouts must be 13 years old by September 1, 2023 to participate.

Diaper Project for Ad Altare Dei

Hi everyone!

During the meetings through November and December, I am collecting diapers sizes 5 and 6 for an Afghanistan family in need. This is to fulfill a requirement for Ad Altare Dei (Boy scout religious Emblem). If you bring diapers to any meeting before January I will collect them.
