Montana – The Great Outdoors

By , September 7, 2016 7:41 pm

We returned from our 2 week adventure Montana, filled with new stories, great experiences and a few nice photos. Here’s a small sampling of them. The weather was great, the groups all made the most of the backpacking and our week touring around Glacier National Park was spectacular. Thanks to all our supporters who helped make this trip possible.

Congratulations to Nick and Tim for completing the week long National Youth Leadership Training Program


The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

Nobscot Trip

By , October 2, 2013 8:16 pm

Last weekend, September  27-29, the Troop 1 Stow took a trip to Nobscot Reserve. A total of six scouts, joined by four adults, went to Nobscot. When we arrived we all hiked in, and rested in leantos for the night. The next morning we made some breakfest, and started our day. Once we were all awake we worked with a younger scout to get some advancment done. Then we proceeded to throw some tomahawks. Pretty soon it was lunch time, and we made some lunch. After that we took a relaxing three mile hike. When we got back to the campsite we rested for a bit, and then started a warm and cozy fire, and made some tortalini and homemade alfredo sauce. Finally we burned though all the wood, and had a very good last nights sleep. Over all the campout went very well with the small numbers, it made us all work together.
