Well, these to somehow accidentally managed to get awarded the White Horse District Award of Merit last week.
Saturday, we did a five mile hike around this battlefield, site of the largest battle in New Jersey history, and one of George Washington’s greatest victories. We then went back to the campsite, where the Scouts had dinner, campfires, smores, and, of course, grass flavored soda.
Sunday, we packed up, then explored the old iron town of Allaire. Great trip!
Next month? We venture to the far North of North Jersey at the Pallisades, where we will hunt for a castle.
Video of our adventures from Goshen Pond is now available. Come for the monkey bridge, stay for the… pickle soda?
The November issue of Trails of Troop 48 is out! Winter Camping tips, Goshen Pond report, Alumnu Corner with Dan Bush, Scout Meme-of-the-Month, and more!
