November half through already, wow,  things are moving fast.  Registrations for Goshen summer camp have already opened.  The troop will be attending the week of July 10th through the 16th. We will be announcing our sign up starting date after the first of the year.  The Philmont expedition preparations will be getting into full swing January first.  The Philmont trek is a challenge, both physically and socially and a number of training events (for both scouts and adults) are being planned.  These events are necessary and need to be attended by all participants.  Philmont Scout Ranch is in New Mexico.  The crews will be backpacking in the mountains for 8 days on their own.  Good physical shape is required as well as good teamwork.  Be on the lookout for upcoming events.
