Troop 106- Summer Camp Update #1

Greetings,

We would like to share with you the details of Troop 106’s planned outing for Saturday August 12, 2023.  This will be the Saturday between the troop’s first and second week at summer camp.  Those scouts attending camp for both weeks should plan on participating unless they are being picked up by their parents for the day.  There is no option to remain in camp while the rest of the troop is out.  Those attending summer camp for only one week are welcomed to either stay one extra day through Saturday 08/12/2023, or to arrive one day early, in order to participate.  The cost for the day’s activities will be $25.00 per person.  Scout’s parents and siblings are welcomed to join us as well.

The troop will depart camp at 10:00 AM on Saturday August 12th and proceed to the Steamtown National Historic Site & the adjacent Electric City Trolley Museum.  These are located in Scranton, PA a little over an hour from Ten Mile River.  

Steamtown National Historic Site (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)

Lackawanna Trolley Museum – Electric City Trolley Museum (trolleymuseumnepa.com)

Scouts will spend the afternoon touring the exhibits at both sites.  The visit to the trolley museum will include a 1 hour ride on an historic restored trolley.   All participants will be provided with a bag lunch and beverages will be available throughout the afternoon.  Before we depart Steamtown, all participants will be provided a tailgate style dinner.

We will then proceed to PNC Field in Moosic, PA where we will watch the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Railriders host the Syracuse Mets at 6:05 PM.  The Railriders are a Triple-A affiliate of the NY Yankees.  Following the game, scouts will be permitted a brief stop at Walmart to pick up any necessities.  We expect to be back in camp by 11:00 PM.  Note that cash is not accepted for any purchases at PNC Field.

In consideration of the fact that group tickets for both the ballgame and the trolley ride will need to be reserved and purchased in advance, payment to the troop for all participants must be made no later than Friday May 12, 2023.

Cash or checks will be accepted at the Troop meetings.
