Reminders for Nobscot Outing

Just a couple of quick reminders for the Nobscot trip tomorrow …

Scouts coming in the morning will meet at the church at 8:00.

Scouts coming later in the day will be met at the main parking lot. Please call Mr. Jensen when you’re about 10-15 minutes from camp and we’ll make sure to have someone meet you. The camp is located at 1 Nobscot Rd, Sudbury, MA – right off Route 20 (Boston Post Road).

The weather forecast for Saturday is for chilly conditions with snow showers throughout the day. Overnight lows are in the 20’s. Please make sure you are dressed appropriately for the conditions.

We will be exploring the camp, perhaps doing some off-trail orienteering, so make sure you have appropriate foot-wear. (NO SNEAKERS!). After the rain of the past couple of days, trail conditions could be muddy and the snow pack will likely be soft and mushy. You should also consider rain or snow pants to keep the legs dry and warm.

This is a map-and-compass trip – EVERYONE should have a compass with them.

We’ll be walking gear up to the cabin, so best to pack in your backpack for the trip. Please make sure you have full water bottles for the day. I’m not sure what the bunks are like, so pack a sleeping pad just in case the bunks don’t have mattresses.

We plan on returning to Westford around lunch on Sunday.

Please call Mr. Jensen if you have any questions …
