Troop 106- Ten Mile River Camping Trip

Good Evening I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. As you know, our first camping trip is coming up this weekend October 8th to the 11th. We are going to the Ten Miler River Scout Camps located in Narrowsburg, NY

We are meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church at 6:00 pm on Friday October 8th. Scouts and Adults are reminded to bring their mess kits (I have mess kits for those who did not receive one on Friday), utensils, water bottle, scout handbook, fishing gear (If you want to fish), rain gear, money for Burger King on Friday night and if you want to purchase anything in the TMR Museum on Saturday.

Scouts and Adults will be staying in Lentos or tents. Please make sure you bring your sleeping bag and mat. You should pack enough clothes for three days and make sure you pack warm clothes as it gets cold at knight in the Catskills.

We are in need of two drivers to transport scouts to and from TMR on Friday and on Monday! Please reach out to me if you are able to provide transportation for us.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at 646-354-0743 or [email protected]

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday!
