Thanks so much to Mr. William for getting us trained and to Mr. McCandless for coordinating and supervising our paddlers!

Have a great summer, and we’ll see you at camp!

Wintoree 2019


Wintoree is one of Troop 353’s annual traditions. We team up with other troops and head up to Durland Scout Reservation for cabin camping, merit badge classes, merit badge counselor meetings, and other rank advancement work.

This year’s Wintoree was a bit later in the year – and a whole lot warmer – than usual, with sunny late-March weather permitting merit badge classes to be held outdoors at the campfire ring!

Thanks to Troop 1 Bronxville and Troop 2 Bronxville for joining us this year!

“Ice Fishing” 2019

Our annual “ice fishing” trip to Ten Mile River is one of the most popular events of the year… even though we haven’t actually done any fishing in forever.

This year the ice on the lake wasn’t thick enough to walk on, so our crew of scouts and dads went on a hike instead. Then, back at the camp, a number of our younger scouts completed some key cooking requirements for rank advancement. And the whole trip became a very nice send-off for some of the troop’s Eagle Scouts.
