Scouts from Troop 156 in Flanders traveled to Long Lake, NY, for a week long backpacking trip in the Adirondack Mountains the week of July 9- 16.
They began their adventure at Sabattis Adventure Camp and were relayed to the trail head by Lake Placid New York. They then spent six days hiking the Joshua Huddy Trail through the mountains. In total they covered more than 50 miles and earned their 50 miler award. Many of the scouts worked on their backpacking merit badge along the trail. Each night they completed a segment of the Kodiak Challenge, which is a youth leadership development course, with a graduation ceremony on the final day.
