This is a popular, nearly annual trip where the troop drives up to the United States Military Academy at West Point. The troop has stayed in various campsites over the years, from regular tent campsites to typical cabins to Army Cadet lean-to cabins. In the past, to get to the campsite, the troop had to hike two miles up Bull Hill with all of their equipment.
After setting up camp, the troop usually met the Army Cadet who would be the guide for the trip. The Cadet would bring the troop through stations where troop members learned about the life of the cadets, group drills, marching, and artillery. Over the years, the troop has made it a tradition to also go watch the Army football game on Saturday.[contact-form-7 id=”1479″ title=”Upload Campout Pictures”]
