Camping - Sandy Point State Park (MD)

Posted on Oct 14 2019 - 11:19pm

Our October camping trip is an awesome journey to Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis MD.  This 786-acre Maryland State Park is located along the Northwestern shore of the majestic Chesapeake Bay.  The park’s beaches and picnic areas are well known for their breathtaking scenic water views that overlook one of Maryland’s true treasures, the Chesapeake Bay.  Activities may include fishing, hiking, playground, kayaking, and maybe a service project.  Our Youth Group (A) rustic campsite overlooks the Chesapeake Bay and has a small picnic shelter with two tables and a grill.  We'll meet at the Scout House at 7am Saturday to prepare for departure, and should be back by 2pm Sunday.  Cost is $45 per Scout, which covers campsite fees, food, travel costs, supplies & equipment, and adult leader support.  This is going to be a memorable trip you won't want to miss!  Sign up on the troop website today!          View the park website here

Navy Football in November

Posted on Oct 14 2019 - 4:47pm

In November we are going to the annual Navy Football Scout Day.  Join us as we watch the Midshipmen host the SMU Mustangs on November 23.  We will be camping at Wye Island NRMA in Queenstown MD, not far from Annapolis.  This should be an incredible trip!!  After a morning tour of the Naval Academy, we will grab something to eat from the various food carts on site (bring cash).  Then we'll take our seats, await the March-On, and cheer the Midshipmen to victory!  After the game, we'll stop for pizza or something else on our way back to the campsite.  We'll have our normal Sunday breakfast and departure, hoping to be back in Gladwyne before 2pm.  Please bring some cash for Saturday lunch and possibly snacks or a drink during the game.  Cost is $60 for Scouts and $40 for Adults.  Game tickets are nonrefundable and must be purchased in advance, so please register soon.
