Allaire Campout!

For our July trip, we lucked into a beautiful summer weekend. We played the “Who can get the best thing for $5 at the flea market?” game (won by Moose Patrol), wandered the village of Allaire, rode an old train, and did a 5 mile hike at Manasquan Reservoir.  Good trip!

Our July 2018 was to the old iron town of Allaire.  We played the “Who can get the best thing for $5 at the flea market?” game (won by Moose Patrol), wandered the village of Allaire, rode an old train, and did a 5 mile hike at Manasquan Reservoir.  Good trip!

James Eagle Project completed!


On July 7 and 8th, James led his Eagle Project at Fort Mifflin.  There a group of Scouts rebuilt a set of stairs that had been on the verge of falling down.  The Scouts also were able to spend the night at the fort.  No ghost sitings that night, we have it on good authority that they were too busy breaking in the new stairs that night.

Congrats on the great work James!

4th of July Parade!

July 4th, Troop 48, Pack 48, and Crew 148 marched together in the Berlin 4th of July Parade!  The Crew are parade veterans, but this was the first parade for Pack 48 and the first parade in decades for Troop 48.

It was a hot one, but we had fun!  Also, the family who set up the sprinkler are THE BEST.

Kicking the summer off right with swimming, canoeing, and a cookout at Atsion Lake in Shamong!

Philadelphia Day Trip – June

It was a day full of history and civics on Friday, June 29 when Troop 48 visited Philadelphia for the day!  We started with the history, as we saw the Liberty Bell first, then walked over to Carpenter’s Hall, and down to Ben Franklin’s grave.

We then beat the heat for a little while with a tour of the US Mint, before heading down to the US Federal Courthouse.  While there, we were given a tour of the now-closed post office, were shown what the US Marshalls have to do for their jobs there, and toured the Federal Bankruptcy Court, where one of the judges talked to the Scouts about how the job works.  Big thank you to Mr. Smith for organizing this tour!


We finished our day off with a tour of Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were adopted.  This is always a great tour.

Overall, a nice day with a 5 1/2 mile walk!  Thank you to Mr. Murphy and Mrs. Dorrell for helping out with our adventure!
