Troop 443


Crew Calendar


Treks are 6-10 day backpacks through the mountains. Traditionally we go to the Sierra Nevada Mountains or to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

"Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain-passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action. Even the sick should try these so-called dangerous passes, because for every unfortunate they kill, they cure a thousand."
-John Muir
