For our June trip, Troop 54 heads to the Blue Hills Reservation. We are considering the Skyline Trail, but the exact route remains to be determined. We will camp at Camp Sayre, a small Scout camp near the Blue Hills.

Travel There:

Meet at the Immaculate Conception Church parking lot at 7:15 AM Saturday for departure by 7:30 AM.

Travel to the trailhead is approximately 1 hour.

Estimated return to the church is 3:00 PM Sunday.

Pack light - "Every ounce counts!"

Scouts who have not been backpacking before should bring their backpacks and other gear to a troop meeting prior to the event.
