We will be getting a good dose of snow just in time for our Winter Camping trip.  There is still time to sign-up!  If you want to go please send e-mail to Mr. Laushine or Mr. McKeen letting them know.

Yes we have a cabin in case you don't want to sleep outside!

Remember to bring you sleds!

The February trip for Troop 437 is a winter survival trip at Camp Resolute located in Bolton, MA. We will be camping at the Mohawk leanto camp site.  We will meet on Saturday afternoon at our campsite and set up camp, cook dinner. Scouts will build shelters to “sleep outdoors” if they desire. Sledding, Skiing and Snow shoeing will also take place weather permitting. Sunday morning we will eat breakfast and depart the site at approximately 9:00am 

All scouts must be prepared for cold weather.  See some tips at our website (http://www.westfordtroop437.us/node/1328).
