2017 Appalacian Trail Spring Break High Adventure Trek

Please see the attached permission slip, pack list, and map for the AT Spring Break Trek this year.

We will be leaving bright and early Saturday morning (6am) April 1st (no this is not a joke) and returning Friday evening April 7th ~7pm (drivers will call when in route with updated arrival times).  Scouts should eat breakfast at home on Saturday before coming to the drop off and should bring a sack lunch for the drive. 

Winter Campout this weekend

For those of you attending the Winter Campout this weekend - please come prepared with boots you can hike in and a compass so you don't get lost.  We'll plan on getting a few miles in (weather permitting - no rain) and will go over some high adventure program details for those of you that attend.

For the 2017 Philmont Crew planning on attending - bring along your packs.

CPT Forms


If anyone picked up some Chief Pontiac Trail forms last night from the Community House please contact Mr. Brown 248-703-2476. They need to be mailed in this afternoon.

Chief Pontiac Trail (Mid Adventure Hike)

REMINDER: ESSAYS are due on Tuesday August 30th to Mr. Brown.

If you are going on the CPT hike in October and want to earn the medal you have to turn in the essay.

One of the requirements is that is must have your signature on the bottom of the last page - hard copies can be delivered to Mr. Brown or you can scan them and email to kbrown_95@yahoo.com See the attached for the full list of requirements.

Volunteer Opportunity - Arts and Apples

It's Art's and Apples time again and Troop 125 is supporting the handicap parking assistance at the Rochester Municipal Park on Saturday September 10th and Sunday September 11th. This is a great opportunity to earn volunteer hours, support the local community and promote Troop 125.

Scouts are required to be in full class A's and are expected to stay at the lot for the full time slot they have signed up for (even if it's slow).

Please log into the sign up genius to select your time slot.
