I am VERY sorry that your Spring Break trip is canceled. Hackettstown High School lost Friday, March 6 during Spring break and Mr. Maney lost Monday, April 2. This recent snowstorm messed up the vacation week for the trip. Mr. Maney would like to run a trip April 6-8. He is researching some ideas. If you have any please share them with us. I am asking that you register for that weekend so we know we have scouts signed up. He doesn't need to research and I don't need to book a camping trip if no one registers. Thank you.

Forestburg trip Cancelled

I just got off the phone with Monmouth council. They are expecting to close the camp due to them getting over a foot of snow on Friday into Saturday. Even if they don't close they don't anticipate any of the camp roads to be drivable so we would not be able to get the trailer to the site. So unfortunately we will have to resechedule the camping trip for this weekend to another time.
