Troop 54 travels to Connecticut for this trip. We will start by driving to J. N. Webster Scout Reservation in Ashford, CT, where we will set up camp at Tent Site 12. This site includes picnic tables and a pavillion. The camp is new to us.

On Saturday, we will drive to Windsor Locks, CT to visit the New England Air Museum.

Packing Tips:

  • Bring a day pack for lunch, water and other essentials during our travel to the museum.
  • Use our Backwoods Camping List to make sure you don't forget anything. See other camping information on our Camping page.

We will be able to drive the cars to the camp site to unload but will have to park the cars in the parking lot.
