April 2016 - Philadelphia, PA

This month we traveled to the historic city of Philadelphia, PA. We got a chance to visit the Liberty Bell and tour Independence Hall. Then we headed south to Geno's and Pat's for some cheesesteaks! Everyone decided that Geno's gets the crown for the best steaks. Some of us even got to meet Geno himself and get a tour into his kitchen! We then went to The Franklin Institute, a premier science museum that was founded in honor of America’s first scientist, Benjamin Franklin. We finished the day with a visit to the Rocky Statue at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a trip up the Rocky Steps.

In March we camped on the Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland. On Friday we hiked around the battlefield and then traveled to Washington DC for dinner and to see the monuments. Then on Saturday we visited Arlington National Cemetery and saw the changing of the guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Then we visited the National Archives and the Smithsonian museums. Saturday night we saw more monuments and Nate recited the Gettysburg Address from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. This was a great campout, thank you to all the adult leaders that made it possible!

January 2016 - Howe Caverns

Discovered by Lester Howe in May 1842, Howe Caverns is the second most visited attraction in New York State, topped only by Niagara Falls. The Troop enjoyed a tour of the Cavern, led by our excellent tour guide, Jeb. We traveled 156 feet below the surface to journey over a half mile through the cavern.
