2006 East Coast Adventure
Troop 33 - First Lutheran: DeKalb, Illinois


EAST COAST ADVENTURE
NYC - CAPE COD - MAINE
June 2006

While exploring some of the east coast, Troop 33 Scouts began by experiencing New York City.

Camping at Pouch Scout Reservation on Staten Island, the Staten Island Ferry took them back and forth to Manhatten, starting and ending every day passing the Statue of Liberty.

Adventure in Connecticut brought Scouts to the New London Naval Submarine Base where they explored passageways in the nuclear submarine Nautilus, and many exhibits at the Submarine Museum

Our nation's smallest state Rhode Island provided camping at a state park near the ocean, grand mansions in Newport and a visit to the Navy War College at the Newport Naval Station.

Cape Cod offered camping at Nickerson State Park, climbing the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, enjoying the ocean beach, and a ferry ride to the island of Martha's Vineyard.

A visit to Boston included touring the Charlestown Naval Yard, home to the historic U.S.S. Constitution, also known as "Old Ironsides", an active warship still commisioned to the U.S. Navy. Scouts also toured the U.S.S. Cassinn Young, a navy destroyer.

Maine was the next part of the trip, with stops at Portland, Bath, Boothbay Harbor, Camden, and Bar Harbor.

These locations provided them with opportunity to enjoy camping, take whale watching cruises, explore a boat building museum, and hike atop mountains.
