Summer 2017 Activities

For summer activities, each scout must attend with his parent or guardian or be supervised by another scout's parent/guardian (carpooling).  No drop-offs.
Priorities for all summer activities: 1. safety first, 2. represent the Boy Scouts of America with courtesy and respect, and 3. have fun

July

Pack Hike at Lake Accotink (3.8 mi)

July 8th at 8:30 am

Meet at Lake Accotink marina

Wear Class B uniforms.  Bring hiking boots or sneakers, 1-2 liters of water per hiker, a snack, sunscreen, and a hat.

We will be making a counter-clockwise loop around the Lake Accotink Trail.  We will hike in light rain but cancel for heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Parents, please use your discretion as to whether this hike is appropriate for your scout.  5 miles is generally within a tiger cub's physical and mental abilities, but in some cases it may be necessary to carry his backpack (or him!).
