The crew went backpacking on the Appalachian Trail and started not far from High Point then moved towards Culver’s Gap. On the way the venturers passed by the pavilion on top of Sunrise Mountain where we had a great view! After a total of 15 miles Jean-Baptiste, Bella, John S., Matt W. and Evan accompanied by Mrs. Rogacki and Mr. Brown (Evan’s father) although tired and ready to go home were quite happy with their accomplishment. The crew looks forward to returning to the trail.
Bella, Andrew and Jean-Baptiste accompanied by Matt, Nora, Mr. and Mrs. Brown went hiking from the Buttermilk Falls to the Appalachian Trail. After this high-altitude excursion the crew then went kayaking on Culver Lake and finished the day by visiting the Sussex County Farm & Horse Show.
The crew went hiking for Ice Cream along the wonderful and local Lenape Trail : Bella, Mackenzie, Evan and Matt were accompanied by Matt, Nora and Mrs. Brown.
On June 9th 2018, two members of our crew participated in a Lenape Trail Hike. Although crews, troops, and packs had been called to hike the entire 34 miles in one day (and some courageous souls achieved this), our adventurous representatives were slightly more conservative and only hiked a small portion of the trail.
The hike started, for us, at Yantacaw Park and finished at Applegate Farm with a delicious ice cream. Along the way we enjoyed many delightful parks, and Jean-Baptiste even found a National Geographic Folio at a garage sale on the way. Everyone had a wonderful day of it, and both youths (Tim and Jean-Baptiste) want to thank the adults who accompanied them.
