Ski Campout

Mystic Aquarium

Friday, March 18 -

Treasure Valley Scout Reservation
Rutland, Massachusetts

Event Description

On this camping trip, Troop 54 returns to Treasure Valley Scout Reservation for our first time since September 2020. We will tent camp at the Madore site. During the afternoon on Saturday, we will travel to Ski Ward in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, where each participant can do some downhill skiing or snow tubing (whichever he registered for).

As indicated in the Guide to Safe Scouting, helmets are required for downhill skiing. If you will be downhill skiing, you will need a lift ticket, ski boots, skis, ski poles and a helmet. If you are tubing, you will need a tubing ticket.

If skiing is not available that weekend due to the lack of snow (they do make snow, so don't go by what your backyard looks like), we will not purchase skiing/tubing tickets (and related gear rentals) and will refund those fees. In that case, we will still camp at Treasure Valley and will instead focus on outdoor/advancement skills.

March 12 Update: On March 11, Ski Ward posted that March 13 will be their last day of the season. Skiing/ snow tubing payments will be refunded. Registration for the campout is extended to Monday, March 14.

This trip is open to Scouts BSA members and Webelos/Arrow of Light Scouts.


Troop 54 COVID-19 Controls will be employed on this trip.
